Twenty-one years of corporate life had looked after Ian Dickens pretty well. A directorship. A comfortable house, flash car and exotic holidays. A happy home with an understanding wife and two children who had entered their teens with no Kevin and Perry signs of rebelliousness. He had a dog that didn't bite when he walked in through the door. He had great friends and privileged experiences. Why on earth would someone give all that up and head off around the world on an ocean-racing yacht for eleven months? Especially when it meant losing all the professional trappings, risking relationships and not knowing where the money might come from when he returned home? Sea Change is a breathtaking adventure from start to finish as Ian Dickens battled against everything that the sea could throw at him, and against the difficulties of the life he returned to - his career gone, the family home just a few weeks away from being sold. It tells the story of the struggle to maintain fragile relationships worn thin by the stresses of the wild ocean; of how the heartbreak of being seperated from a precious family was offset by the vigorous joy of following one's dreams to their conclusion...
