Description - Flirting with Mermaids by John Kretschmer
In twenty years of delivering yachts to far-flung quaysides, Kretschmer has had innumerable adventures, both humorous and threatening. In this first paperback edition, he recounts the most memorable of them, from a Western Caribbean research voyage with a crew of eccentric Swedes to a North Atlantic crossing during which he discovers the existence of Force 13 winds. His adventures have been many and varied, and his stories are told with optimism and humour.
