His beautiful wife, Jan, is furious when Tom gambles the family's fortunes on a risky boat-yard partnership with crusty old sea-dog, Jack Rolfe. With his idealistic son caught in the middle, Tom's venture faces disapproval from his headstrong daughter and interfering mother-in-law. Such conflicts are a far cry from Jan's social and career aspirations, forcing a reappraisal of her life and marriage. Can Tom make a success of the boat yard and will Jan be there at his side if he does? Ken Masters the local marine tycoon has other ideas... For a slice of idyllic yachting life, join the residents of Tarrant, where glamour and glitz meets corruption and sailing.
