With a sense of exploration in front of them they were not prepared for the challenges that lay ahead-at sea and on land-not least unpredictable weather piracy drug dealers and places that were notorious for violence against anybody perceived to be an outsider. Despite the dangers they would meet a host of interesting and unusual characters. Families who had also made the sea their home and strangers who would become close friends. Keeping in contact with each other as they journeyed forth such camaraderie would prove essential throughout their journey. They would discover that these newly found relationships would be a vital ingredient in holding them together in their most desperate times particularly on occasions when they would question their own rationale. Three Years at Sea is a tale of courage discipline and a family's devotion to succeed as they set out on a three-year sailing trip of 26 000 nautical miles of ocean. An account of a family's unity unexpected learning and daring to accomplish their dream-a true adventure of danger and discovery.
