A magni cent account of courage and perseverance as a young doctor takes time off from his busy practice to sail a 31' yacht (single-handed much of the way) from England to New Zealand.

- Confrontation with the Sicilian Ma a at Marsala

- Collision with a freighter near Gabo Island, South Australia

- Harassed by a UFO mid-ocean in the Tasman sea?

? Having gone through this ordeal, he recognised of himself that he felt mentally and physically better equipped to deal with the challenges of the future. Neville found ocean sailing an extreme challenge, and yet he owns Doumar to this day and sails her as regularly as he is able on the approaches and outer reaches of the Whangarei Harbour. This story is for the ardent reader who wants to feel the joy and the misery of being at sea in a small boat.?
