ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Rob and Rosemary Peterswald have been sailing together for many years, both in Australian waters, in the Mediterranean and on the Dutch and French canals. They have produced six coffee table books encompassing their sailing experiences, the seafood they have tasted along the way and the many varieties of wine of each region they have sailed through.
Their first boat was a small wooden motor launch, which they acquired in Port Moresby shortly after their marriage in 1966 when Rob was posted as an officer with the Pacific Islands Regiment at Taurama Barracks. In 1975, with Rob now posted to Canberra, they acquired a Boomeroo 22, based on the design of the Catalina 22, an American yacht, which they sailed on Lake Burley Griffin and along the coast of NSW.
