Now available – Merlin Magic

On this very day, 23 years ago, Dave Chambers and I set off into the early morning sunshine in a battered Belgian VW Golf, towing a tiny boat called Merlin. We were heading for Brittany, where we planned to spend the next month based in the Port Rhu Maritime Museum, Douarnenez, from where we would explore the Breton coastline – a coastline with a deservedly fearsome reputation.

You can now read about our collective adventures in an Amazon Kindle e-book. A further version should be available through the Apple iStore for use on iPads shortly, while paperback and hardback versions (with illustrations!) will be available through Blurb Publishing (and probably through Amazon) within a month or so.
 
It was a magical four weeks. I hope that you enjoy them as much as we did:
