E. S. McCawley writes: ""This is the best of the deep sea cruising books I have read in a long time. There is variety of experience, ranging from a small boat voyage to the West Indies, happy-go-lucky adventures among the islands, a passage north on a racing yacht ending in shipwreck off Hatteras, a winter voyage in the North Atlantic, and a long cruise in the South Seas. There isn't a dull page. The author makes his experiences come alive in simple, unaffected writing. This earns a place with good adventure. Sell to anyone who has sailed anywhere. Plus sale for boys.
