After leaving the Merchant Navy Kevin Cooney started out on his own with a humble back-garden engineering shop. A chance encounter led him to specialise in manufacturing stainless steel components for yachts, and it wasn't long before he caught the sailing bug himself. Thanks to ingenuity, determination and a great deal of hard work, Kevin managed to pilot Cooney Marine successfully through the difficult decades of British industrial strife and build it into the largest independent supplier of stainless steel rails and fittings in the UK. Now semi-retired and with his son at the helm, Kevin is free to indulge his passion by sailing the oceans and even crossing the Atlantic several times. This book is based on the diary he has been keeping for more than 40 years.ÿ

When country boy Chris Hough first laid eyes on a yacht as a child, it was love at first sight. Sailing started out as a hobby and became a passion. It Wasn't All Plain Sailing charts Chris Hough's nautical career, beginning as an eight-year-old running around the tin shed that was the local yacht club and building his first yacht at ten. He has competed in eleven Sydney to Hobart races and has the distinction of being Australia's second World Champion. Chris shares his sailing adventures and his insights into the people he meets along the way. But life is not without emotional casualties, and the lovers and friends he leaves and grieves for, leave their mark. An inspiring story about the triumph of determination over great odds.
