Long Standing Ambition - the Windsurf Round Britain book - is published. It is available now in paperback and Kindle editions.

The book has been written for quite a while now, but publication was slowed up by the need to include maps - and there is one for every day sailed; and some photographs - where I thought these added to the account and there was space to put them. So apologies for the delay, but the result is a book that is to my mind is now genuinely complete.

A meeting with Rob Henshall - pioneer solo expedition windsurfer

Yesterday I met Robert Henshall - the pioneer of solo expedition windsurfing - a man whose existence I first became aware of over twenty years ago. He got a too-brief mention back then, in Boards windsurfing magazine, for having solo windsurfed Ireland. That feat stuck in my teenage mind, and became the foundation of my belief that windsurfing round Britain unsupported was a reasonable and feasible proposition.
