In his third book Roger Taylor ventures to even more remote seas in his tiny junk-rigged Corribee Mingming. The first voyage, across the North Atlantic to Baffin Island, is curtailed when Taylor is injured in a storm in the Davis Strait. Unwilling to sail on into the ice with a broken rib, he turns round and re-crosses the Atlantic to Plymouth, completing a non-stop voyage of over 4000 miles. The second voyage takes the reader to Jan Mayen, Spitsbergen and on to 80°North, virtually as close as it is possible to sail to the North Pole. During these two voyages Taylor spends well over four months at sea, observing and reflecting on the sea itself, its wildlife, its attraction, and man's uneasy relationship with it.
Roger Taylor was born by the sea, of sea-faring stock, and has been sailing for well over fifty years. In January 2010 he was awarded the Jester Medal by the Ocean Cruising Club for 'an outstanding contribution to the art of single-handed sailing.' His best-selling sailing books have been translated into French and Russian.
