Summary

Max Rigby is a middle-aged, aloof writer stuck in the past when he falls in love with the pit-girl from S/V Nefarious, a sailing vessel that lives up to its name. The woman who has awakened his heart is the fleet's most fierce sailor, Robin Mac Bradaigh, aka "Mac", a young, fiery, unapologetic sailor who refuses to be pushed around by a fleet of scoundrels. But Nefarious carries a dark reputation, and Max soon finds himself caught up in a sailing race that is as dangerous as it is thrilling.

Lack of research

Considering that this book is written about a writer doing research it is quite disappointing to find that the writer knows almost nothing about the subject (ie. Yacht racing). A similar lack of knowledge on the part of the reader is revealed by pronunciation and emphasis errors that just emphasise the problems.

That’s one credit I’ll never get back.

Feels like I attended Race week myself.

Complex book with lots of profanity and surprises. I really enjoyed it. The characters are legit and their struggles authentic. I have dabbled a bit with yachts and did stints as race crew and delivery crew before. I could easily identify and pin point the various believable characters, because I brushed shoulders with people just like them in the past.

Entertaining read

An entertains story, full of emotion and poetry.
