    Hi all,

    Thought you might like to know there is a book (and event) about sailing to Cava from Stromness, similar to Shaky's trip today. Thought it might be of interest:

    This from the National Library's website:
    'Found at sea'
    Through music and poetry Andrew Greig recounts the tale of his open dinghy voyage from Stromness to Cava. By sailing small boats in scary open waters Andrew Greg found a new activity and a new metaphor for life. Written in six weeks, 'Found at sea' is a 'very wee epic' about sailing, male friendship and a voyage. The evening also includes readings from Greig's 'Getting higher: The complete mountain poem', with musical accompaniment from Jim Hutchinson.
