Come Sail With Me

Author: Wendy Leo-Smith Format: Paperback Release Date: 20/09/2021

Adventures and challenges of a life at sea, ‘Come Sail With Me’ by Wendy Leo-Smith describes the moment the author accepts an opportunity to sail a small racing yacht to Brazil from Gran Canaria. Life onboard and its challenges are described as well as the relationship with Rory, the ship’s owner and only other crew. This is an interesting read for armchair travellers and sailing aficionados, the author describes the trials and tribulations of sailing, the myriad of things that break, the temperamental weather and the vital hard graft as well as the moments of peace, stunning experiences of nature and far flung destinations. The author manages to maintain the diary style format when creating ‘Come Sail With Me’ and I found this writing style and format easy to enjoy while it also clearly sets out how much time has passed. Having read about this experience from a different perspective in ‘Jabula’ by Rory Leo-Smith, I found that ‘Come Sail With Me’ went into more detail about the day-to-day life aboard the Zingara. The entertaining trials in order to sort out the laundry, Bella, Zingara’s feline mascot, the Rio carnival and the ventures to find Sloths are just some of the details that I think help this book to appeal to a broader audience interested in travel. There’s a relatable tone to ‘Come Sail With Me’ and I found this a very well-rounded account that I think fans of travel as well as fans of sailing would enjoy.
