Letters from a Lost Soul A Five Year Voyage of Discovery and Adventure Synopsis

Bob Bitchin bought the staysail ketch Lost Soul in 1990 and he and his wife Jody have been sailing the whole world ever since from a trip to the South Pacific to a 12,000-mile pilgrimage to Sounion, Greece and the temple of Poseidon, the god of the sea. This travelogue follows the exploits of Bitchin and his crew as they discover the highs and lows of life at sea. Experiences range from the best of sailing, the whitest beaches, the biggest palms. At the same time, Bitchin's sense of humour comes through as everything that can go wrong will: wrong winds, broken generator, failure of all electrical equipment mid ocean.

Letters from a Lost Soul A Five Year Voyage of Discovery and Adventure Press Reviews

. . . a tale that is often ribald, invariably irreverent, sometimes poetic, and other times, to quote the author himself, 'as blunt as a biker's backside' . . . an entertaining package of adventure.
