    Seven years after the end of the Second World War, Captain Nancy Blackett attempts to sail across the Atlantic single-handed, in her sloop The Wild Cat Island. Unsurprisingly, what she finds is not a simple crossing, but adventure with Smugglers, Parrots, and a Mysterious Package.

    Summary

    But it did not feel as discouraging to look at the unobtainable as it had done a few moments earlier. It wasn’t the thermos flasks she was pining for anyway, she knew that really. And it was good of Peggy to understand that, and yet still to talk about thermoses.

    No-one will be surprised that John Walker joined the Navy. But what is the life of a young officer like, and can a love of small boats be useful when serving in His Majesty's Ships? Will childhood friendships survive the onset of adulthood? Not a continuous narrative, more a selection of scenes as in Forrester's "Midshipman Hornblower".
