In his new book Roger Taylor follows straight on from 'Voyages of a Simple Sailor', taking us on three more extraordinary voyages aboard his junk-rigged Corribee Mingming. This simple, rugged 21' yacht, constantly developed and honed for effortless single-handed ocean sailing, goes where much bigger and more sophisticated craft fear to tread. Iceland, Rockall, the Faroes, Jan Mayen, the Greenland ice, together with a southern interlude to the Azores, are all encompassed in these enthralling adventures. Written in Taylor's trademark style - fast-moving, witty, uncompromising and intensely observational - these stories will take you to sea as you've never been taken before.
Roger Taylor was born by the sea, of sea-faring stock, and has been sailing for well over fifty years. As a young seaman he was shipwrecked on a remote New Zealand shore aboard the square-rigger Endeavour II. He then built the 19' Roc and twice crossed the Tasman Sea in her. He has forged a unique sailing partnership with his latest yacht Mingming, using her to develop his ideas on simple, harmonious voyaging. In January 2010 Taylor was awarded the Jester Medal by the Ocean Cruising Club for 'an outstanding contribution to the art of single-handed sailing.'
