Circle Line Around London in a small boat
The author is a journalist, a sailor and canoeist who decided to sail, row and motor a small boat around London via the tidal Thames, her forgotten waterways and the canal network linking them all together. He did this to raise awareness and funds for the charity 'Sail 4 Cancer'.
His book describes his voyage and the characters he met. Most of all, it is interspersed with memories, historical facts about the building of London's canals and her maritime heritage where the docks built to bring the necessities of life from around the world to feed England's population.
