This volume records in detail the dramatic events of an episode which grabbed headlines across the world. Having left St Katharine's Dock, London, to sail around the world, Peter and Shirley Billing were taken at gunpoint from their yacht in the Red Sea. Fortunately they were keeping a regular radio schedule with other voyagers so their disappearance from the radio waves was noticed immediately. Accused of spying, the Billings protested their innocence at every turn, yet it was the efforts made on their behalf by fellow sailors, friends and relatives in England, press coverage and assistance from British authorities that achieved their release a month later, when they were eventually returned to their yacht and could continue their circumnavigation. This account tells how the innocent cruisers were arrested on spying charges, and shows cruisers the dangers of sailing in many areas of the Third World.
