About the Author
Caspar Craven is a respected and sought-after keynote speaker on the topics of leadership, team building and dealing with adversity. He engages business audiences with stories from both the business world and from sailing twice around the world - the first time on the Worlds Toughest Yacht Race and the second time with wife and three young children, aged just 9, 7 and 2. Caspar delivers practical specific lessons that audiences can understand and use in their day-to-day lives, and is invited to speak all around the world to inspire and motivate business and their teams to create change.

The book is split into short easy to read sections and shares the ups and downs of planning and executing the Craven's dream of taking a year off to sail around the world with their three young children.
You don't need to be into sailing to understand this, after reading the book you'll be in a much better place to make your dreams come true.
I was fortunate enough to spend a little time with a relaxed Craven family (and their crew) in St Lucia but had not realised how much planning, preparation and commitment had gone into making their shared vision real. This book is as much about relationships, team building, leadership, risk management and family as it is sailing – all of which translate well into other areas of life where there are opportunities for improvement through change.
I also know a little more about water makers, diesel fuel systems and emergency rigging repairs which might prove useful at some point in the future. Thank-you.
