Pelican Point 13

Pelican Point 13 is a sprightly adventure in the tradition of the Pelican Point series.

Tom Mornington, a washed up WW2 spy and local cray fisherman, returns to form as he is asked to skipper a vintage yacht called Shamrock 6 in an ocean race of sheer nostalgia. An array of old time America’s Cup challengers has been rebuilt by an eccentric and enigmatic tycoon. Tom can’t resist the challenge. These old style ‘windflowers of the sea’ are trophies of elegance, class and grace as they amass for the greatest yacht race the coast of Mandurah has seen.

Set in the 1970s, the yachts hark back to the times of Thomas Lipton, the tea magnate, who made 5 challenges for the America’s Cup.

Fantasy and history collide in this crisp and vivid escapist adventure spiced with memorable characters. It will appeal to maritime romantics and fans of Western Australia literary legends alike.
