This is the story of a circumnavigation of Ireland aboard my 27ft yacht in 2011. From the Forth I went round Ireland anti-clockwise, which people tell me is the ’wrong way round’. Most of the journey was sailed solo. I skirted a lot of the bits of the ‘Celtic Fringe’. By sea Celtdom doesn't look so much a 'fringe' as the centre, a fact which I rant about quite a lot

“Skagerrak and Back” is the story of my North Sea circuit aboard my 27ft yacht. This is not a tale of astonishing derring-do and bravery in the face of insurmountable odds.
