Well known writer, broadcaster, presenter of ITV’s Countrywise and keen sailor Paul Heiney describes the single-handed voyage he made around Cape Horn in an effort to reconnect with his son, Nicholas, who committed suicide at the age of 23. Nicholas was also a keen sailor and Heiney decided to set off on a voyage he would have liked them to have made together. Heiney’s story is a powerful one of finding peace of mind in the face of insurmountable grief. It is also a story about facing one of the bleakest and wildest places in the world and battling violent winds and tempestuous seas.

Heiney has appeared on all of Britain’s major radio and television networks in a 30-year broadcasting career including long stints on highly rated shows such as Watchdog and That’s Life and currently as the face of Countrywise.  He has also written more than a dozen fiction and non-fiction books including Can Cows Walk Downstairs?, a bestseller in 15 languages. His family were originally beach fishermen and lifeboat men and he has sailed for more than 25 years.
