Summary
At sea can be a beautiful and ferocious place to find yourself - alone and together.Growing up in inland Australia, Judy, a young teacher, has rarely seen the sea. But when she flees a rioting classroom one dismal Friday, a dud and a failure, she gets drunk and wakes up on a boat. Overnight her life changes; she is in love with being on the water and in love with Wes Bannister who lives on the boat. Sailing was not something Judy had ever thought about wanting, but now she craved it. Wind was the best teacher she'd had, by far...From then on, Judy believes that the one trusted continuation of herself is with Wes, and always will be, but then events at sea challenge their closeness.

It seems they must.A Sea-Chase is a novel that vividly tracks ambition, self-realisation, and lasting love tied up in a sea story.
