    Yes. I read them a very long time ago and would enjoy reading them again.

    I wonder what became of Jonathan Raban. Did he write any more books?

    Thanks for the recommendations. I've just bought both books off ebay for £2.99 each.

    Quite a few, just google him. There is one about a guy sailing back to england I believe, I remember looking at it on amazon, but it was quite dear (out of print prob) but I've never been able to find it again.

    Just had a look and I notice two more of his books that I'd read, and enjoyed:

    'Bad Lands' and 'Old Glory'

    Having bought a copy of 'Coasting' after having spotted this thread I agree, nicely written and was well worth the read.

    Halve way through "Passage" for the second time at the moment. A brilliant read.
    I found "Coasting" less mature having just finished "Passage To Juneau" for the first time. Hence the second visit....... if you follow?

    If you really have time to spare follow the route on google earth
