Monkeying Around at Sea, Paperback / softback Book

Monkeying Around at Sea Paperback / softback


Monkeying Around at Sea follows Angela Coe's two-year voyage from Singapore to Spain in a Ferro cement boat named Sandpiper.

Travelling alongside her husband, Bobby, a monkey called Pixie and her cat, Bob-tail, Angela embarks on an incredible adventure with no previous experience of sailing.

Disasters start from day one when, still at anchor, Pixie goes overboard and is thought to be lost.

Bobby, the Captain, ends up in a hospital with a dislocated shoulder and when they finally set sail, they end up on a sandbank.

Their aim is to sail to England, but their plan to go around the cape soon becomes a perilous quest to brave the Red Sea...

While tragedies occur almost daily as they battle with life at sea, living aboard Sandpiper also has its lighter moments.

Pixie keeps them on their toes and every new port brings fascinating places and people.
