To the Sea in Ships Shorelines talk: Horatio Clare will talk about Down to the Sea in Ships - his best-selling story of travelling the oceans on container ships. It reveals an unknown world upon which the one we know depends, exploring the ships, the men, the trade, ports, weather and wildlife of an almost unseen planet.
