Synopsis

REVIEWS FROM THE WORLD'S PRESS



'Thank God myself and my daughters never sailed on one of Mr Tickners ships.' Passenger Ship Monthly



'There are no two storey brothels in Mombasa.' Kenyan Tourist Board



'The top speed of the Woolston floating chain ferry is five knots not four knots as erroneously stated in Mr Tickners novel.' Southampton Nautical Historical Society



Robin Tickner first ran away to sea officially at sixteen years of age sailing on Union Castle passenger ships until over fraternising with passengers led to a 'Dishonourable Discharge' and a move to cargo ships. After tramping around the worlds ports he took his first wife on a trip to India which led to 'swallowing the anchor' at the trips end and a divorce due to the wife's affair with the third mate.



Builders labourer, fire extinguisher salesman, vibrator specialist are all on his CV along with sales director as he donned a suit and travelled Europe. In his prime the call of the sea once more took him back on the ocean waves living on 'Wizzo' his sailboat chartering out of Mallorca during the European summer and seven times across the Atlantic to winter in the Caribbean. He now lives in Sydney with his third wife and two stepchildren both of whom do not believe a word of his scribbling's!
