Canvas Flying, Seagulls Crying:
From Scottish Lochs to Celtic Shores
After Justin and Linda Tyers lost everything in a devastating house fire, they rebuilt their lives by building a classic wooden yacht from scratch--starting by felling the trees. This story was told in their first book,Phoenix from the Ashes.
This sequel follows their voyage from the Scottish Islands across to Ireland, down the Irish Sea to Cornwall and thence to Brittany, meeting interesting, curious and larger-than-life characters along the way. Justin has an unceasing ability to attract the nearest eccentric wherever he goes, a brilliant eye for natural humor in any situation, as well as a wonderful, lyrical turn of phrase.
The book is peppered with amusingly told anecdotes of everyday cruising life and packed with the kind of inevitable dramatic incidents that happen when you have two inexperienced sailors trying to man a yacht that’s really too big for them: running aground, losing a guest overboard and almost being shipwrecked--more than once.
This is not a tale of intrepid on-the-edge sailing; it is a gentle, endearing and frequently amusing account of the sort of voyaging most cruisers can relate to and will greatly appreciate.

Fiat will not sell a stake in Ferrari, Formula 1’s governing body should stop knee-jerk rule changes and Lewis Hamilton is a top driver – those are the views of Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo, expressed in conversation with CAR Magazine. CAR’s October 2011 issue – on sale now – contains a VIP tour of Ferrari and interviews with the company’s top brass: president di Montezemolo, Ferrari CEO and engineer Amedeo Felisa and design chief Flavio Manzoni. We covered so many fascinating topics that some great material could have finished up on the cutting room floor.

The 2015 Audi TT arrives at the Geneva Motor Show
Audi hasn’t quite been to the Porsche school of car design for the 2015 Audi TT, but no one is going to accuse Audi of a radical departure for its third generation sports coupe. But despite familiar looks and profile, there is a lot going on in the new TT. The design is crisper and the front end is bolder with a more prominent grill, the new headlights get new LED graphics, the bonnet is more contoured and the Audi four rings move on to the bonnet – just like the R8.

The Ferrari 599XX - a track Ferrari and a rolling test bed for technology
We first got to see the Ferrari 599XX at the Geneva Motor Show in March, when Ferrari brought one along to the show, but details were a little thin on the ground. In fact, there were more details on the handling pack for the 599 – the 599 HTGE Pack – than there were for the 599XX. But Ferrari has now remedied that, and supplied us with more information and some pictures.
