Jonathan, a self-taught sailor left banking to sail around the world. For four years, he headed west into the setting sun as his objective, whether it was 1000 or 10 miles, he knew where he was going, but not what adventures were in front of him.
This story is more than just sailing but an action packed adventure with a sinking, violent storms, and development of a band of brothers! In today's world of 24/7 communication and electronic maps, Jonathan experiences of foreign ports, yachties from different cultures, engineering breakdowns not to mention a 'perfect storm' all via radio and phone boxes seems like a historical adventure, but it was only 25 years ago.
He is one of the few Asian circumnavigators who have written a book about what it's like to come from the Far East, sailing into foreign ports.

About the Author
He is married with children and lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. When he gets a chance he sails with his family. He still cooks his "No Worries Chicken curry" and drinks too many cups of tea.
Jonathan rates himself as the world's worst speller, only saved by spellcheck. This disability made school life difficult, and he had to work hard to overcome this obstacle to graduate from University and become a writer. He credits his mother and his wife, with the support he needed to succeed- something that families of dyslexics should keep in mind.
