How does a middle-aged, seasick electrician with no money end up sailing around the world?
Dreams have a logic all their own. Some start with a flash of insight or a moment of recklessness. This one started with a handshake. When Yanne’s best friend Carl suggested they sail around the world together, Yanne blamed the wine.
Yet, the idea stuck and twenty-four hours later, the two had an iron-clad agreement; a handshake. The little details –buying a boat, learning to sail and saving up money – took five years, but in 2002, the two men left Helsingborg, Sweden on a three year voyage that would change them forever. Storms, tropical deceases, drama, love and comedy – their story is an adventure like no other.
Brave or Stupid is the best book for anyone who has ever gone beyond what is sensible and realistic to discover a whole new world outside and a whole new person inside.
A best selling book for anyone who still believes in the power of dreams. And handshakes…
