Rod Heikell’s New Book!

Rod Heikell’s New Book!

Barrie’s good friend and fellow Kiwi Rod Heikell has just produced a brilliant reflection on pretty much everything historic and up to date about Mediterranean sailing!

As with all Rod’s writing in all his amazing harbour guides and other publications, it is a reasonably easy read although quite a long one!

You may see some photographs from the Sailing Holidays History Book appearing here and there, as we are very much part of the last 40 or 50 years of sailing the Med.

It goes all the way back to the Pharaohs of Egypt and their luxurious vessels. He talks about the incredible seafaring of the Phoenicians, the Minoans, the Mycenaeans, the Carthaginians and the Romans.

Several sea battles fought in the Mediterranean changed the entire course of world history, so it is quite an intriguing tale.
