Two route canals

Having moved from Vancouver to Hong Kong in 1987, Nottinghamshire-raised sailor Adrian Sparham rejected an airline industry promotion for a posting in New Zealand and chose instead to sail to Europe from Hong Kong via the Suez Canal with his Dutch-born wife, Lot, and their dog, Fluke, in a 37-feet steel ketch, Moonshiner. After a three-year stopover in Holland, they sailed back to Vancouver, via the Panama Canal. Their eleven-year odyssey is recalled in Slow Boat From China (New York: Sheridan House, 2006). 1-57409-217-0 $29.95
