'A Quick Dash for the Horn'
Paul Heiney has been a writer and broadcaster for all of his working life, having worked on all the UK’s major radio and television channels.
But his career as an ocean sailor is less well known. His most recent adventure, described as an epic, was to Cape Horn and back, largely single-handed.
After the early death of his son, aged 23, Paul made this voyage in his son’s honour, and in the hope of understanding more of his life and death. Far from being a maudlin tale, this is a story of high adventure on the seas and fitting memoir of his late son.
