There was no family history of maritime adventure and my parents had no expectation of me in this area. One minute I was a schoolboy – average, skinny, callow, under-confident – the next I was in a cheap hotel in Hamburg, sandwiched among a string of bars off the Reeperbahn, waiting for my ship to dock, living with a mixed bag of characters who were beyond my imagination and understanding. I had flown the nest now and my game was on. I couldn’t return home -there were too many barriers: pride; curiosity; expectations of others; shame if I turned back; the things I had to prove to myself, to family. My quest. My test. When I turned 15 I had no earthly idea what I was going to do in life. I vaguely mulled over the future, but only in a schoolboy context, in which my horizon was the weekend, or possibly to the end of term. Otherwise it was couched in juvenile fantasy: war hero, football hero, superhero, long-lost relative of a gazillionaire and so forth. My father was a pilot – an RAF officer with a war pedigree.
