In the Wake of the Lord Sheffield

Join Brian, the Barracuda Kid, as he saves his father’s tall ship and sails the Caribbean on a desperate mission to save his father and Captain Olsten from ruthless, modern day pirates.  Set in St Maarten, Saba, Carriacou and British Guyana, this story, while completely fictional, is based upon a real ship, real places and real people and maybe, just maybe, could have really happened. This is the first book in the “Barracuda Kid” series.  Book 2 is on its way!

“I looked ahead, behind and around the boat. We were all alone in the middle of the sea.”

Lord Sheffield Tall Ship Adventures provided day-sails, romantic sunset cruises aboard the Tall Ship Lord Sheffield on the island of St Maarten until sunk in hurricane Gonzolo.  She remains afloat in the new children’s / young adult novel, In the Wake of the Lord Sheffield, written by Captain Rob and his wife Mary Beth.

Join Brian, Owen and Matthew in this rollicking romp across the Caribbean.

“Enjoyed the read , waiting for next installment. Every child should have the opportunity to read this novel – well done!”

“My family and I have sailed on the Lord Sheffield over a dozen times during her years in St. Maarten. This book brought back so many great memories. A well told story with plenty of action and adventure. Knowing all of the real characters who sailed the Sheffield made it even more special.”

"The perfect book for kids... if you want them to become sailors."
