From the Publisher

‘Skipper’ is the story of a small ship manned by part time reserve navy sailors on a voyage from Singapore to Brisbane, Australia. During the trip the crew, from the Captain on his first ocean voyage to the most junior sailor, is tested by inexperience, a pirate attack, a cyclone and the tragic death of one of their own.
Confined to the limits of a one hundred and twenty foot steel box, the crew react in a variety of ways to their new surrounds. Several do not cope and are dismissed. Others learn from the sea and the experienced seamen to overcome doubt and fear to emerge as proud and laudable sailors with skills that will assist them in every walk of life.
The sailors that complete the voyage of the Gunnedah, are better for the experience. They will acknowledge the benefits in family relationships, civilian employment and personal achievement.
Above all they will return to the sea and introduce others to the lessons learned.
