By Murray Burt
How a young wanderer, on the cusp of manhood in the mid-1950s but doubtful about his capacity, goes to sea crewing under sail. There he finds old men with young dreams in a luxury yacht. Young men with varied ambitions. Younger women seeking escape. All of this testing a reluctant hero’s capacity to cope and take charge in a very Mediterranean crisis afloat. It’s a salty tale of fulfillment, spiced with a dash of passion and romance, upstairs-downstairs prejudice and fleeting old boy class and racial snobbery. All this in a world ex-pat Aussies, Kiwis, Canadians and South Africans regularly set out to explore — new colonials testing myths of the old.
