Marsha By The Sea Pack of 10 'Storms & Calms' Postcards


The quote on this print - "I hate storms, but calms undermine my spirits" - is from famed French sailor Bernard Moitessier's book, The Long Way, his own story of his participation in the first Golden Globe Race. It was a solo, non-stop circumnavigation rounding the three great Capes of Good Hope, Leeuwin, and the Horn. Despite battling everything the sea could throw at him for seven months, from storms, doldrums, gear-failures, knock-downs, overwhelming fatigue and - most crippling of all - loneliness, Moitessier withdrew from the race near the finish line and headed back off to sea for another three months. He ended his 37,455-mile journey in Tahiti having not once touched land.

Our beautifully designed postcards are a favourite with customers. Frame them, pin them to a board, stick 'em on your fridge, use them as book marks or be a traditionalist and mail one to a friend or lover. These are heartfelt souvenirs from the seaside, capturing what life on the coast means to us at Marsha By The Sea.

Each pack contains 10 of this design, created in collaboration with Electric Carp. Printed on responsibly sourced paper.

P.S. We also sell poster versions!
