Synopsis: Clare Allcard and her husband, Edward, have dared to live a life that armchair adventurers can only dream about. Here Clare tells the story of their adventures aboard the Regina Johanne, a rotting, worm-riddled, 69-foot Baltic Trader they discovered beached in Antigua.
Clare and Edward (a naval architect), their daughter Katy, and an ever-shifting crew spent twelve years on the Regina Johanne, working to replace rotten timbers, exterminating the worms that were devouring her hull, constructing a peculiar one-and-a-half poster bed in preparation for a cruise with Clare's parents, and patching the frayed sails by hand.
While repairing the boat, they sailed from Antigua to Nevis, England, France, Denmark, and other exotic ports. Clare's insightful writing both addresses her family's personal experiences on the Regina Johanne and includes useful information about the ports they visited, critical advice on the predominant sailing conditions in each area, and characteristics of the various foreign cultures they encountered. Sailors and nonsailors alike will be inspired by Clare's fascinating discussion of the family's nomadic lifestyle aboard the Regina Johanne.
