Sailing well into his eighties, Captain Eric Forsyth shows that age need not be a barrier to an adventurous retirement. His love of ocean sailing was ignited in 1964 when he crossed the Atlantic with his wife, Edith, crewing aboard a friend’s 46-foot boat. Despite the hardships of that trip, he was hooked on sailing and began planning his life around doing more of it. This memoir accounts for Forsyth’s more than fifty years of ocean sailing, mostly aboard his sturdy cutter, Fiona. He has cruised the oceans of the world, making voyages that included two circumnavigations of the globe, cruises through the Northwest Passage and to the Baltic, and several excursions to both the Artic and Antarctic. His stories will appeal to all sailors, whether active or armchair, and to travel buffs with a penchant for remote places and their histories.

On a more serious side, Forsyth has seen many countries that he visited over the decades change from languorous oligarchies to developing democracies with a thriving middle class.  Like the U.S., they have a profligate appetite for fossil fuel, which is not a sustainable resource in the long run. In his book, he suggests ways of bringing attention to this global problem.
