A decent story of small boat adventures
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Depends on the friend. If he/she is interested in this type of sailing I would recommend it but not highly. I would not recommend it to all of my sailing friends.
If you’ve listened to books by William Longyard before, how does this one compare?
My first book by Longyard
What aspect of Jon Repp’s performance would you have changed?
He pronounced some words wrong like bow, pronouncing it like the thing a girl wears in her hair rather than the bow of the ship. Also Fallmuth instead of Falmouth. Just bugged me.
Did A Speck on the Sea inspire you to do anything?
Any additional comments?
The stories seemed to run into each other and if you are listening off an on during your commutes they all seem to sound the same. The thing I disliked the most was that they called Sven Yrvind, Sven London. Not sure why this was but it was a pretty big mistake in my book.

A race to the end.
A race to the end. Told far too fast. I couldn't keep up with the various stories.
What more ? Nothing.
