Health reminder for maritime men

Sailing Through Life, by Nick Ardley

Sailing_through_life_cover.jpgFor a lot of men, a trip to the doctor is something to be put off indefinitely.
So this book by Nautilus member Nick Ardley is a helpful reminder to those working in the male-dominated seafaring industry that going for a checkup could save your life.

Ardley bravely opens up about his reaction to a diagnosis of prostate cancer, and his near-breakdown as a result – plus the struggle of dealing with a serious illness during the Covid-19 lockdowns. He attributes his recovery to his family, and to his passion for sailing onboard the boat he shares with his wife.
