Jeremy is back home after a holiday in Toronto with his dad and his dad's new wife, and he's also back on his incredible travels into the past. All he has to do is pick up his grandfather's old magnifying glass, look at a stamp with a ship on it-and instantly he's on board! And he's got lots of reasons for wanting to escape. Since he went on his holiday, Jeremy's mom has a new boyfriend, Ike. It's her first boyfriend since she divorced Jeremy's father. Jeremy doesn't like Ike very much, but he could turn out to be Jeremy's new dad.

In search of escape, Jeremy plunges into new shipboard adventures. He nearly drowns on a racing yacht in the famous Australian Sydney to Hobart race in 1998, during which five boats sink and six people die. Of the 115 boats that start the race, only 44 make it to Hobart. He almost gets caught on board Samuel de Champlain's ship, during its 1606 trip up the St. Lawrence River. And he witnesses Jacques Cartier's turbulent encounters in 1535 with Canada's original First Nations inhabitants.

Jeremy also runs into his own grandfather (as a young boy) and his own grandson, both travellers from their own times, and they help each other out of dangerous situations.
