How this man has had the time to fit in all the things he has done in his life is quite amazing and here we have another of his adventures. Along with being the original drummer in Genesis, getting a pilot’s license, learning to shear sheep, joining a circus and much, much more Chris also became skipper of a Cornish Crabber sailing to the Greek Islands with no experience at sailing whatsoever. This is his story of the following months learning as he went and not always making the best decisions. One thing Chris Stewart does do is make you believe anything is possible, you just have to give it a go!

Three Ways To Capsize a Boat Synopsis

If you’re wondering what Chris Stewart did before he and Ana moved to El Valero, their Spanish farm, here’s one of the answers. He took to the sea, landing a job as skipper for the summer, sailing a Cornish Crabber around the Greek islands. It was his dream job – and there was just one tiny problem. He hadn’t ever sailed before and had not the foggiest how to start.

In a series of madcap and hilarious adventures we follow Chris from a shaky start in Chichester harbour to his epic Odyssey to Spetses (a bucket would have been handy), and then on to the journey of a lifetime – battening down the hatches on a trip across the North Atlantic. It’s a journey crackling with Chris’s zest for life, irresistible humour, and unerring lack of foresight.

Dry land never looked more welcoming.
