A wonderful collection of excerpts from some of the best writing about sailing. This one would possibly be worth owning! And definitely worth mining for what to read next - I read Cachalot based on the samples in here, for example.
Great book! If you're interested in history of sailing, especially in its most glorious times when 'The Clipper Way' was busy then this book is for you. Francis Chichester makes a good compilation of stories by other authors which cover in very colourful details most of parts of that ocean path.
Just started this one, can't wait to hear about the roaring 40s
Great read if you want to be terrified of sailing the southern ocean - running down the easting.
