KIRKUS REVIEW

For the young yachtsman, this story of nearly 6,000 miles of ocean travel under sail by a man who waited 20 years for his dream to come true. From the building of his boat, when he had freed himself of the chains of a job, to the start of his ocean cruise, he tells of the discipline of the ""dear ship"" and the hazards of seafaring. From South Africa, to St. Helena, Ascension, Brazil and up to Trinidad, he vividly describes the rewards of lonely travel and independence, the severe bludgeoning of storms, the accidents and mishaps.
