Bernard Moitessier was one of the world's great small-baot sailors. He wrote four other books, all classics of nautical literature. Sailing to the Reefs was Moitessier's first book. The Long Way covered the famous Golden Globe race that he abandoned to "save [his] soul." A Sea Vagabond's World is a practical book and Tamata and the Alliance, finished shortly before his death in 1994, is the magnificent autobiography of this uncommon man.
A true classic by and about one of cruising's best known authors. * Latitudes & Attitudes *
