Description
Octogenarian Paul Packwood from Ipswich describes a 58-day, single-handed cruise in his 18-foot sailing boat, Plover. Not a complete circumnavigation of the British isles, but a thumbnail odyssey round the south of England, through coastal waters and inland waterways. All is not smooth sailing. In difficulties off the Cornish coast, he is towed into port by a lifeboat. A collision costs him a broken thumb. Undaunted, he completes the voyage and brings Plover back to the River Orwell. Paul Packwood was born in 1924 in Bristol but considers himself an Ipswichian. Following military service he took a degree in economics .After teaching and youth work, his final work was as founder and leader of the Murrayside Club - -a youth club with many differences.
