Julie Gifford retired in 1999 at the age of 42 and went sailing!
She and her husband Ed Kettyle jumped on their 44' sailboat Free Radical and spent the next 13 years sailing - completing a circumnavigation of the planet in 2006.
After completing her circumnavigation she worked for a period of time at the North sail loft in St Martin in the eastern Caribbean.
Her professional training at the sail loft combined with her personal experience living full time on a boat and a lifelong love of sewing, have inspired her to write this very thorough and practical book.
