About the Author

Jeremy Atkins was elected to membership of the Imperial Poona Yacht Club in 1981 when he left Oxford University having studied sailing and tomfoolery. On graduating he settled into a career in market research while also founding and running the Laser 2 Class Association in the UK and Worldwide. Having self-published his first book in 1984, he returned to writing, and self-publishing, in 2009 to write the history of the Imperial Poona Yacht Club and two other sailing clubs he was a member of. In 2013, having run his own market research agency for 15 years, he acquired the nautical list from multinational publishing company Wiley, re-founded the independent Fernhurst Books and became a publisher for real. Since then he has published over 70 nautical books. In 2020 Fernhurst Books set up Self Publishing House to help would-be authors publish their own books. Jeremy is a past Laser II National Champion and currently sails a Fireball and Solo at Draycote Water Sailing Club, where he has been Commodore for 5 years.


"If you can bring yourself to read this book from cover to cover, you will be in a position to judge for yourself whether, or not, life can be significantly improved by not taking it too seriously all the time." - His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
