New Sailing Book "Knots Made Good"


Hello everyone!

I’m very happy to let you know that I’ve recently published a book called “Knots Made Good: Sailing Adventures in Eastern Canada.”

This is a book for those interested in adventure, travel and the exploration of Canada’s vast eastern seaboard and Great Lakes. Each chapter is a first-hand account of exciting and challenging voyages aboard a 41-foot sailboat named Bagatelle. Photos, trip summary tables and beautifully hand-drawn charts are available throughout the book. Take a trip along the rugged coastline of the Gaspé peninsula, marvel as you journey around Québec City, Magdalen Islands, Halifax and the southern coast of Nova Scotia. Witness the awesome power of wind and wave as Bagatelle makes her way in the Gulf of St Lawrence, her crew at the mercy of the elements. Prepare yourself for the adventure of a lifetime!

The book is available for sale from at the following link:

Thank-you in advance if you decide to purchase a copy,
