Chris Stewart, also known as one of the founders of the band Genesis, turns his hand to storytelling in this entertaining memoir. Set in the early 1980’s, the author recounts his turn as a yacht captain in the Greek Islands, undaunted by the fact that he’d never actually sailed before!

 

Stewart's eventual love of sailing translates well to landlubbers, while sailors will be glad to have missed the winter storms and sea ice encountered. A funny, appealing read.
Library Journal

Three Ways to Capsize a Boat: An Optimist Afloat is Stewart's hilarious account of exploring the world, and he proves that no obstacle—seasickness, setting the boat on fire, capsizing—will stand in his way of exploring the seas.”
National Geographic Traveler

Three Ways to Capsize a Boat” is a charming and lyrical read, awash with the joy of discovery, and Stewart is an immensely likeable narrator…The key to his popularity is his honest and self-effacing determination - as discussed during a mid-Atlantic storm - to live a rewarding life.”
Guardian, UK

Chris Stewart is possibly the only travel writer who is genuinely funnier than Bill Bryson.”
