Alone Across The Atlantic

4.17 based on 6 ratings & 0 reviews on


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.
