Frank Guernsey lived through this tale of his record- setting 128-day nonstop journey, sailing single-handed from Southern California around Cape Horn to Uruguay in an engineless sailboat, only 24 feet long. Cy Zoerner put this harrowing adventure into words as no other author could. As Frank revealed the story, Cy began to wonder, as would we all, what could drive a man to commit to an outrageously dangerous undertaking in such a small craft. After endless hours discussing life and love with Frank, Cy understood and a story, like no other, poured forth.This will be the best sailing adventure you will ever read and quite possibly the best book you will read for years to come. The greatest fiction can not match the adventures and life of Frank Guernsey".Humans!" The handle of my precious watermaker stopped in my hands. My eyes strained at the black speck on the gray, watery horizon. The misery from the open saltwater sores I sat on, winked out. As I switched on my video recorder, my only companion since I set sail, I repeated, "Humans? After all these months alone..". I glanced at my watch. It was January 2, 10 a.m.
A good general cruising guide covering the routes from Europe to Australia and points in between. The 'Indian Ocean Cruising Guide' covers all the usual points of interest for cruising yachtsmen, from history to climate, weather patterns, formalities, route planning and so on. The general sections are followed by a country-by-country round-up in which key ports are described in detail with the aid of harbour plans and photographs. This second edition (2007) has been thoroughly revised and contains a lot of additional information on Malaysia and Thailand, the Seychelles and the Chagos archipelago. The introduction has been expanded and throughout there are new plans and photographs. This guide is an ideal companion to Rod Heikell and Andy O'Grady's 'Ocean Passages and Landfalls' which discusses routes across the Indian Ocean.
