KIRKUS REVIEW

A high point of nautical adventure, this tells of an eighty day crossing of the Atlantic from Gibraltar to New York in a 34-foot, 40 year old yawl. The modest narrative, based on his log, follows the six weeks trip from England to Gibraltar, where he prepared for the 5000 mile crossing via the Trade Wind routes. Plenty of exciting incidents and everyday sailing problems in this fascinating account of a remarkable exploit. For all who love adventure and sailing.
