Listeners travel across years and seas with author Peter Clutterbuck in his improbably small dinghy, Calypso, on voyages that he admits his older, more experienced, self would never have tried. Malk Williams's narration starts with Peter's boyhood row across the English Channel and recounts his ever increasing desire to best each of his records. His goals culminate in the longest-ever trip made in a Wayfarer class open dinghy, which takes more than three months. Sailing fans and people interested in survival and adventure stories will have much to learn here as Williams details the careful provisioning of the craft and the many dangers Clutterbuck encounters at sea. Williams's calm, measured tones belie the difficulties--from rudder breakages and dismastings to hallucinations. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2018]
