WIND ALOFT, WIND ALOW

Something for the open sea enthusiast, this account of two trips across the Atlantic, one in Winnibelle, sailing, the second in Arielle, by power, both single -handed. A modest account, filled with details of distance cruising, the precision of arrangements, choice and outfitting of boats, the actual experience of solo traveling. This will fill quite a need, for with the war this type of personal adventure has naturally been missing, and although the voyages are mid-1930's, the experiences,- ocean travel in small craft- have their own special appeal for their special audience.
