As epic sailing books go, Andrew Fagan's Swirly World is not a biggie. In 1994 Fagan decided to enter the Solo Tasman race, run every four years by the New Plymouth Yacht Club. But neither is his bright-green yacht, Swirly World in Perpetuity. And that's the charm of this book. It's about mucking about in boats, not having much money, sailing, getting wet and uncomfortable, coming back to dry land, going sailing again. Quite why anyone would want to go solo sailing offshore in a . m yacht just for the hell of it, is mystifying to the comfort-zone sailor. With . 2m the minimum length, Swirly World's . m didn't qualify but Fagan persuaded the race committee to make an exception.

The adventures of Andrew Fagan, a music legend in the 1980's. To escape the crowds, Andrew enjoyed nothing more than solo sailing, and he took his small boat 'Swirly World in Perpetuity' on some great adventures, including a trip to Sunday Island, a return trans-Tasman voyage and a circumnavigation of New Zealand. Along with the expected hardships and dangers of ocean sailing in a small craft, the voyages offered opportunities for reflection, and as a result, this book contains plenty of both drama and philosophy.
