The story of David Jackson’s voyage of life; on the sea, over the sea and in its depths. Full of anecdotes that will at times bring tears of laughter to your eyes, but sometimes show the dark side of people’s personalities. The book is a potted history of traditions, and what life was like on RN ships and in the air.
An unlikely hero, David tells of accidentally torpedoing a British submarine, surviving two helicopter crashes, re-writing the rescue manual after rescuing in 60 ft waves and when engulfed in smoke from a blazing ship during the Falklands war.
This book tells how, out of humble beginnings, and with a love of the sea, David became the most decorated sailor of his time. Later, he became an instructor of flying and desert survival to Omani Arabs. Eventually, the restless seas drew him back and he again sailed the oceans, this time in his own boat with even more adventures, and as a sailing instructor. He has again changed direction in life, but has not lost his connection with the sea, producing a revolutionary rescue device, the SeaStrop.
