In 1977 Angela Rice left the UK for a three-month work assignment to the Middle East, and returned to her home in Hampshire 20 years later having acquired a husband, two stepsons and a career in management. Her husband John comes from a seafaring family and has sailed since childhood. Angela's mother routinely took seasickness pills on the ferry to the Isle of Wight. But John somehow managed to turn Angela into nearly adequate dinghy crew, before deciding to upgrade to a slightly larger model... John and Angela now own a Nimbus 3003 based in Southampton. John was attracted by its apparent seaworthiness, classic lines and 200hp Volvo. Angela by its deck cabin and microwave. They share the boat with friends, taking it away in the winter.
