The life and times of Peter (Stokey) Woodall,  a working class Black Country man. This is a light hearted and humorous look back at his early sailing experiences and seafaring adventures.  

“Two minutes into the meal we suddenly found ourselves in the Red Sea rather than on it. Our boat had been cut in two by a large, anonymous ship which had failed to notice us and did not stop.”  

This and many more stories will be followed, after a brief intermission, by:

Satellites to Frying Pans

During these times of uncertainty and troubles it is good to be positive.

The Scenario: GPS goes down, you don’t have a chart, compass, log or timepiece, the stars cannot be seen because its foggy.

Don’t worry! Stokey will show you how to navigate with a frying Pan.

Plus, how to tell the time from the stars and, many tips and tricks gained from him having navigated and sailed more than 300,000 Nautical Miles.
