Publisher's Summary

In A Foolish Voyage, Neil Hawkesford gives us a remarkable tale not just about sailing but about life. Good times and bad. Here we learn what happens at the very limits of physical, emotional, and mental endurance. Here we also learn how personal tragedy can lead to a life-changing discovery, the realization that hidden deep inside all of us is the perseverance and passion needed for achieving life's greatest goals.

    "A great listen and a reminder of sailing happiness"

    Neil's account of how he found happiness owning and caring for a small sailing boat is a motivating reminder of how little we really need in life to become happy.

    "Pathway to an authentic life"

    Ever wonder if there is more to life? Great story to make you think about your own journey. This book challenges me to expect more from my future and to take the leap of faith to trust my dreams and instincts. Really enjoyed this book.

    Story
    "Exciting, philosophical and moving. "

    This is a relatively short book, but none the worse for that, packed as it is with moments of hope, excitement, pathos, tear wrenching sadness and ultimately deliverance. Whatever stage of our journeys we are on in our love of the sea, there is something all of us will recognize in here, even inexperienced sailors like myself who spend more time on land dreaming than on the water living. For us dreamers, this book really hits the spot.

    Story
    "Engaging Sea Tale"

    The best books I have ever read seem to be about the sea. The drama of man or woman against the immensity of the Ocean is true adventure. I loved Neil's honest account of his ambitious project to master seamanship and sailing. He shares the mechanics and misgivings , while he takes us along for a great sail.
