"The Watcher on the Quay is the true story of an Australian woman's travels as she and her partner throw aside the trappings of their usual lifestyle to explore the world aboard their yacht Windigo.  In an entertaining and inspirational account of her experiences, Olma brings to life a large cast of colourful characters including the nipple-twisting Moustafa Abid in Oman; Ismail, the Turkish teacher who grew up in a nomad's tent; the strangely possessive Viking and his Irish wheaten terrier; and Mr Boozo, the obnoxious Caribbean optician with a collection of glass eyes on wire stilts.
In a captivating sprawling tale filled with quirky observations, Olma takes us with her on her journey across seas and oceans; through jungles and deserts; great cities and island chains.  We feel included as we discover Olma's world - one that the watcher on the quay may never know."
