    About "John Walker"

    1. John Walker

      John is a well qualified and experienced British inventor, engineer and aerodynamicist, and he just wanted to write about various things that had, or might have, happened to him.He writes to stave off the incipient insanity of trying to bring his various inventions to fruition He says that all writers are of course, by nature, idea thieves, and, if it works, sorcerers.He began by designing cars, but soon became fascinated by wingsails One of the wingsail boats he has designed has circumnavigated the Globe, he has sailed another safely through a major Atlantic hurricane off Bermuda, Claudette , and one of his designs was given a Millennium Award by the British government He s very proud to have been described by the late Professor Austyn Mair, Head of Engineering at the University of Cambridge as One of the foremost engineers of my generation.He has been awarded the Sir Frank Whittle Prize, the Sir Henry Royce Gold Medal, the Popular Mechanics Nautical Award, The Silk Cut Nautical AwardJohn s writes about how he embarked on one of his inventions After designing several cars, including the glass roofed sports car used for many years by Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, I first got the idea for a wingsail in the days when the various grades of marine fuel oil were not only cheap but seemed likely to last for ever, and the idea of global Climate Change was unknown.My original wingsail prototype, Planesail, was conceived after a humorous to other people anyway incident when, as a young aircraft engineer, designing wings and flaps in the aircraft industry during the week and sailing at the weekends, I was sailing an old fashioned yacht on the Norfolk Broads which if you don t know them are wonderful sailing places in the eastern part of England She had brown sails, and a lot of rather squeaky little brass sheaves in the blocks controlling the long wooden boom at the foot of the mainsail.This meant, especially in the light winds we had on that day, that after a gybe, where the boom had swung across the stern in a or less controlled fashion, it was usually rather reluctant to run right out again on the opposite tack because of the friction in the sheaves So I had come to an arrangement with my husky young crew, Charlie, that as soon as the boom had banged across he would give it a good firm push to pull the main sheet briskly through the sheaves and help to get the mainsail reset The jib had its own boom and traveller, and was therefore self tacking.Well, as often happens in those crowded waters, a tubby little motor boat came happily pottering down the middle of the river as we were tacking up towards her The helmsman was probably wondering why this sailing boat was zig zagging backwards and forwards across the river, and possibly assumed that we were either drunk or just playing aboutAnyway, I suddenly realised that he had no intention of getting out of our way, and yelling Gybe Oh at the top of my voice I pulled the tiller up towards the wind, jammed it between my knees and began furiously hauling in on the main sheet to get the long wooden boom as near to the centreline as possible before it banged across the stern.We missed him by no than a few inches, and I m told that his wife waved cheerily at us from the cockpit as they puttered on their way Charlie had by this time grabbed the boom and, as previously agreed, was powerfully heaving it forward The sheaves squealed, the rope snaked up from the cockpit floor, all exactly as we done it so many times before However, this time I had somehow got not one but two loops of rope round my feet, and found myself being inexorably hoisted aloft, upside down, my ankles locked in a perfect clove hitch.Alarmed by my cries for help Charlie turned round, and instantly let go the boom, but by now the sail was full of wind, the boom went steadily on its way towards the shrouds, until my feet were jamm

    1. I really enjoyed reading Shadow Dancing, by John Walker. The plot was exciting right to the end and kept me sweeping the epages. The main characters were very interesting, especially Charles the clever inventor, whose main inventions seemed able to solve the world fuel crisis if taken up! His romance with the damaged, but amazingly resourceful, Amanda was intriguing and sensitively told. The book was full of memorable things - the wonderful house on the precipice(with helicopter landing space on [...]
