Alan Lewrie is a scandalous young London rake whose amorous onshore adventures lead to his being pressed into His Majesty's service by his own father. As a reluctant midshipman in the Royal Navy, Lewrie finds that he is a born sailor. As his career advances, he finds that the life of a naval officer suits him, as his seamanship and leadership qualities surface.
