Worse Things Happen at Sea

Worse Things Happen at Sea is the long awaited follow up to Jake Kavanagh's hugely popular Ups and Downs of a Lockkeeper. This time turning his humorous eye to the scrapes people get into when let loose on open water, Jake has us chuckling, blushing and recognising ourselves or fellow crew coming unstuck in the maritime mayhem he highlights with his witty pen and captures so admirably with his hilarious illustrations. A great read for the armchair sailor - but you may decide that the armchair is the safest place to stay! 'Had me laughing out loud on many occasions.' Motor Boats Monthly 'A great read, and thoroughly recommended.' World Cruising Club

About the Author

Jake Kavanagh was born into a boating family and for many years lived by the Thames at Marlow. After a variety of jobs the River eventually drew him back; Jake joined the Thames Water Authority as a lock-keeper, working the locks around Windsor for many years. Jake, well known as a boating cartoonist and freelance boating writer, is also the author of Ups and Downs of a Lockkeeper, also published by Adlard Coles Nautical.


'One thing you never get in a Kavanagh cartoon is a blank face. His variety of facial expressions, ranging from panic-stricken wives to grinning spectators, from horrified lockkeepers to determined skippers, are a treat.' Nautical Magazine (January 2010) '...we can sit back and enjoy the misfortune of others.' Canoeist (January 2010) 'Kavanagh has again produced a 'laugh-a-page' collection of stories and sketches showing the unbelievable scraps pople can get into out on the water.' Sailing Magazine (December 2010)
