Summary

The British and Irish Lions were formed in 1888 before a tour to Australia and New Zealand. It was a mainly English squad and it wasn t until 1899 that the party had players from all four home nations. The 1910 tour to South Africa marked the official beginning for the Lions, although they would be known as the British Isles until 1924. The 1950s was a glittering decade and the side won the majority of their games. They weren't as successful during 1960s, but the 1970s saw a return to form with scintillating but brutal tours to South Africa in 1974 and New Zealand in 1977.

    The idea that you have to be rich to travel the world on your own yacht is so universal that it goes largely unquestioned. The ubiquitous images of rich men on super-yachts sipping Martinis only help cement this image. This book hopes to change all that.Rick's recent appearance on Ben Fogle's New Lives in the Wild chronicled his budget lifestyle and adventures aboard Calypso, and introduced the idea of budget sailing to a whole new audience—an audience who may have never considered the possibility that such a dream could be made a reality, on such a small amount of money. This book is for them and for any experienced sailors who want to cast off the yoke of consumerist yachting and get back to what really matters at sea.If you are not rich, but dream of seeing our beautiful world from the deck of your own boat, this book is packed full of practical and spiritual advice to help you cut through the endless marketing and identify what it is you truly need to become a modern sea gypsy and sail away on the greatest adventure of your life . . .
