Episode 20 of The Sailing Podcast is with Justin and Linda Tyers who, after watching their house burn down and losing everything, turned this tragic event into an opportunity to start afresh and build a new future.
Justin wrote of their journey in his book “Phoenix from the ashes” which covers their story from rebuilding the house to building a boat and then tells of their experiences on the water. Justin has a writing style that is easy to enjoy and his book will appeal to both the sailor and the non-sailor alike as it is more a travel story than just another book about boats.

You should go and have a look at the artwork by Justin as not only is his drawing great, but it has that nautical element to it and if you find something that you like you can email Justin and arrange to purchase a copy. I think I will put one on my wish list for Christmas as my family are always complaining that its hard to find something to buy for me.
