KIRKUS REVIEW

Further travels by the author of Isabel and the Sea, take him, his wife and his new 16 ton sloop, from England to France, Spain, Portugal and the Mediterranean this time sailing outside rather than through the previously traveled inland waterways. How this small Bermudian cruiser proved practical as well as pretty, how she changed from a strange craft to a well loved boat of both power and steadiness are part of the story of their adventures at sea and their experiences ashore. Here are the harbors and waterfronts along the coast of Europe, each with its own individuality, problems and incidents; there is shoal and deep water and there are out of the way ports that lead to little known country and towns. It's a modest, intimate log whose boating detail and friendly style makes for sure sailing appeal.
