At the end of the voyage described in the Wind is Free, Frank Wightman was forced to sell his beloved yacht Wylo in Trinidad and return to his native South Africa. There, stifled by office life, he determined at all costs to return and reclaim his yacht; and at length crossed the ocean, bought Wylo back and once again prepared her for sea. Until joined by his former shipmate half-way through his exotic, refreshing and beautifully described trip through the Milky Way islands, each with an enchanting personality of its own. After Graham Young, who took the photographs, flew out to meet Wylo, they sailed together to the coast of Florida where Wightman, once more on his own, moved up the inland canal. And there, as winter set in after an exciting summer of sailing the seas, he was faced again with the threat of having to relinquish his boat. Not only a love of the sea, in its moods and changes, gleams through every sentence Wightman writes, but also a love and appreciation of life as it strikes the eye in the warm, indulgent tropics.
