Theo Dorgan s gripping account of a transatlantic voyage on the schooner Spirit of Oysterhaven from the Caribbean to the coast of his native Cork is both travelogue and meditation, interior journey and outward voyage of exploration Dorgan s meticulously exact account of the labour and skills involved could well act as a handbook for anyone prompted to repeat the adventureTheo Dorgan s gripping account of a transatlantic voyage on the schooner Spirit of Oysterhaven from the Caribbean to the coast of his native Cork is both travelogue and meditation, interior journey and outward voyage of exploration Dorgan s meticulously exact account of the labour and skills involved could well act as a handbook for anyone prompted to repeat the adventure His feel for the history of the sea and sailing, drawn from wide reading, is tested against the practical realities of what is involved in such an ambitious undertaking The qualities of endurance and willingness he must find in himself, the shared experiences that make four individuals into a crew, all these come as a succession of revelations He brings a poet s eye to the immensities of the ocean, its lore, its mysteries and its secrets As so many before him, he will learn that what you find on the journey, not the destination, is what matters A book for everyone Doris Lessing This book exerts a form of curious hypnosis which stealthily insinuates its rhythms into your mind It keeps you alert while somehow lulling you into a drift of easy reading This enticing travelogue s curious spell is slow and incremental, yet all the potent for being stealthy THE SCOTSMAN
