The Story.....

10 October 2008
Rick's Place is a story of a solo sailor and is based on the author's adventures, both real and imagined.

Follow Rick through his carefree youth and later as a series of events leave him jobless and wondering just what to do with his life. Then live vicariously through this charming landlubber turned sailor as he lives everybody's dream of escaping the rat race and sailing off into the sunset.

The road to paradise is a bit rocky as Rick faces fear and loneliness when he encounters storms, a stowaway cat and unrequited love along the way. There is also a lot of fun as Rick meets an odd assortment of new friends and quirky characters during his journeys.

The story culminates in a life changing event that once again leaves Rick wondering what to do with his life and you'll find yourself rooting for this resilient young man.

This humorous account will leave you longing to visit the beautiful South Pacific Isles Rick sails to, as well as giving you a realistic look at the adventurous cruising lifestyle experienced by those traveling the Coconut Milk Run.
