Description: A Sailing Adventure. Book has Map endpapers and photographs. A Sailor's Dream Cruise: How a Canadian family (including they young children) built a boat in their backyard and sailed to Africa, South America and Panama on their way around the world.
Thousands of readers were enchanted with the tale told in All in the Same Boat of a family of four who gave up everything that seems "normal” to a landlubber and sailed off in Lorcha, a nine-metre home-finished yacht with the red sails of a Chinese junk, to circumnavigate the world. Almost two years later, they had seen only the countries of the Atlantic Ocean.
When we left Paul Howard, Fiona McCall, and their children Penny and Peter at the end of that book, they were moored at Panama and had just jointly made a momentous decision - to extend their unorthodox lifestyle by several more years. They were about to traverse the Canal and venture onto the Pacific Ocean with all its varied perils and delights.
Once through the Canal it was on to Galapagos. Having made the acquaintance of an expatriate Canadian tour guide and her family, that treasure-trove was opened before them. The two families sailed from island to island making friends with iguanas and booby birds, learning of the area's geology, and swimming with the friendly sea lions.
After Galapagos the paradise of the South Pacific lay before the family in the form of the thousands of tropical islands that sprinkle this ocean. They began with Pitcairn Island, famous as the refuge of the mutineers from the Bounty and home today to the descendants of those mutineers. Pitcairn's anchorage is an uncertain one and few ships stop there, but Paul, Fiona, and the children spent a few days among friendly people with a most singular culture. The children attended the island's school, but the day came when the winds almost forced Paul and Fiona to leave the children while they sailed away to weather the gale.
