Sea Legs free pdf Three years after his return from the Alaskan wilderness, Guy Grieve was living on the Isle of Mull in Scotland with his wife Juliet and their two young sons. Sick of the weather, perennial colds and their increasingly routine lifestyle, they'd all been getting restless. Finally, Guy and Juliet broke in spectacular style - they re-mortgaged their house and bought a yacht. Her name was Forever. The plan? To pick up Forever from her mooring in the Leeward Antilles off the coast of Venezuela, and sail around the West Indies before crossing the Atlantic back to Scotland. This was despite the fact that Guy, skipper of the expedition, had almost no sailing experience. Travelling around the lush tropical islands of the Caribbean and up the waterways of America, the family had countless sublime moments as they discovered the freedoms of sailing - anchoring in deserted bays, night passages under star-studded skies, and entering New York by water, greeted by the Statue of Liberty. But there were also testing times as they grappled with seasickness and bad weather, coping with young children at sea and learning to run a large, complex boat. Far from being the idyllic escape they'd envisaged, the journey forced Guy and Juliet to draw on reserves of courage and endurance they never knew they had. Wry, funny and buccaneering, this is a compelling tale of bravery and endeavour, out on the open sea.

About Guy Grieve

Guy Grieve is an adventurer and entrepreneur whose fight for sustainability has led him to start up a much-acclaimed ethical fishing company on the Isle of Mull. He skippers the family fishing boat, Helanda, and dives for king scallops that are prized by chefs throughout Britain. Call of the Wild, his first book, was inspired by the year that he spent living alone in a cabin in Alaska in 2004-05. He went on to present a number of television programmes as well as writing for various national publications. Guy Grieve lives on Mull with his wife and two sons. @guygrieve / ethicalshellfishcompany.co.uk/guy-grieve
