About the author
Nicholas Lovell is a keen crusing sailor, who occasionally dabbles in racing (although always in somebody else's boat). He's been sailing for 22 years, mainly in yachts but sometimes in dinghies. In 1994, Nicholas spent six weeks sailing in the Atlantic, travelling from La Coruna in north-west Spain to the Azores and then back to Gibraltar. In 2001, Nicholas bought Tripitaka, a Dufour 36, and cruised extensively around the Mediterranean for six months, visiting Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily, Malta and Gozo as well as the mainland of France and Spain. Tripitaka is currently moored in Puerto Alcudia in the north-east corner of Mallorca.
