Adrian and Lot Sparham decided to escape to the freedom of life aboard. Sailing from Hong Kong to Vancouver, Canada on Moonshine, a 37′ steel ketch, they encountered a myriad adventures and people which Adrian describes in Slow boat from China. From Singapore to the Bay of Bengal and the Red sea, they met with colourful natives, powerful storms and corrupt customs officials. The European leg of their journey saw them in the rivers and canals of France, fighting floods and french taxis to end in Holland where they replenished their kitty. A crossing of the North Atlantic and the Panama canal brought them close to home. They shared their adventures with Fluke their dog, who added a special dimension to their travels. 228 pages PB
