There are a lot of people to thank for their ideas, information, help, photographs and criticisms, particularly my family who have been landed at unsuitable places, walked to non-existent beaches, sat and shivered while I took the perfect shot, and dragged around mouldering castles: Ben, Margaret, Oli, Lucy, William, Ilona and Cathie. Others who have been a great help include the Fox family (all five of them in their ridiculously small 25ft yacht) and of course Richard Roberts who was the co-owner of Calypso, our Contessa 32 from 1988 when coincidentally we both moved from England to Scotland, until 2010 when we both retired and bought a new boat each. It was Stuart Taylor, a publisher, who suggested that a website would be more appropriate than a book, and Steve Druitt — a frequent crew somewhat prone to sea seasickness — who suggested the easy to use web tools produced by Moonfruit, and how to draw the maps.
