Thanks. I didn't want to breach forum rules with my first post! The link to Beating the Big One (Kindle edition) is Beating the Big One : The first high-latitude crossing of the Atlantic by open boat for 1,000 years eBook: Tony Holkham: Amazon.co.uk: Kindle Store
- profits will go to the RNLI.
For those who don't remember, or weren't around then, Beating the Big One is the story of Alan Priddy's high-latitude Atlantic record-breaking crossing by RIB in the 1990s. It also includes details of several other earlier RIB escapades.
I think a Kindle reader in a plastic bag is a brilliant way to have reading material on board as salt water doesn't do paper much good...
BTW looking forward to Alan Priddy's circumnavigation record attempt, even if it's not in a RIB.
