About the Book
The storm in a teacup regatta takes place in St Barthelemy's Island during the time of the Bucket.. where the largest yachts in the world battle outside the port of Gustavia.
The "Teacup" is for tiny yachts, built by the children of the island, under the guidance of David Wegman, to race their little boats across the harbour and back.
All sort of designs take part, and the children are the "committee" of this race that is for FUN
and pleasure only.
This book is a thank you to David, and to all the children that take part, and the author hopes that it will long continue to give pleasure to all who take part in it.
Boredom I have discovered is a great stimulant to writing. Travelling in a van, instead of a sail boat, there was nothing to pull on, no watch to keep, so I played with the dashboard buttons and windows until I was told off. What to do? I thought, here I am travelling, most people would wind the hind tail off a donkey to do this, so why am I going crazy. A little Zen training had happened some years before, "Notice" said the guru. "and write it down." So this is how and why I started to write. I am a complete novice, but what the heck. It is fun! If you meet me today I will want to know how your liver is working and if you use a double knot to tie your shoe laces. So beware. Life is interesting again!
