Rainbow Goes to Sea by Roger Miles


Rainbow Goes to Sea by Roger Miles

We sailed a very old wooden ketch six thousand miles from Vancouver Island to New Zealand, a feat we felt was singularly impressive since we had, virtually, to learn how to sail and navigate along the way with no charts and inadequate sextant knowledge. A journey of faith, into the unknown that really became an adventure, exciting and sometimes terrifying. Become inspired, as we were, to escape the rat race, to drop everything and do something outrageous and rewarding and perhaps, like me, you will see the hand of God upon whose palm you journey. This is the story of the Rainbow , a converted Royal Navy ship's pinnace built in Newcastle on Tyne in 1891 that became the magic carpet for a couple of young people who were willing to forgo a life of safety and security to find themselves through a voyage to 'the Real World'.
