We won't be beaten by anyone. Guaranteed

Up the Creek charts Tony James' unintentional voyage from his home in landlocked Derbyshire, to a marina in Somerset via the Caribbean, the Persian gulf and the bottom of a swimming pool in Ottery St. Mary. On the way, Tony gathers a motley crew of unforgettable eccentrics and maritime misfits, brought to hilarious life by his acute observations of the ridiculous and by his wry acceptance that whatever happens at sea, things can only get worse. The funniest and most original sailing book for years.
