A brave man in a small boat alone on a big sea. Vintage Chichester, written after the 1960 Singlehanded Transatlantic Race, before Sir Francis made his epic, solo voyage around the world. Chichester was a courageous explorer and gifted navigator. In this book he shares his fears and moments of exhilaration on the Atlantic. The result is both a practical tale about Gipsy Moth III’s sailing victory, and a day-by-day sharing of adventure by her skipper.
