In the process, he's amassed an extensive collection of papers and books on the history of yachting in the Mediterranean and participating in the modern era of that history. HIs latest book, The Gift of a Sea, pulls together the history of sailing for pleasure in the Mediterranean from the ancient Egyptians up to the present.
