About the author

Rom Hyde was born in February 1947 and had his first sailing experience in July of the same year, although his memory of it, he says, is fairly vague.


His experience on boats since those early days is more akin to messing around in Toyota Corollas rather than swanning around in Ferraris.


It spans decades of loving boats, hating boats, repairing boats, getting sick on boats, sick of boats, falling off boats, racing boats and missing the involvement in boats.


In every situation, good or bad, placid or dangerous, he can see a funny angle and expresses those angles in this book.


He is still twenty five years old inside his head.
