Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Moitessier's notebooks include all the know-how and the 1001 tips of this legendary sailor, the knowledge he acquired on the water, in meeting with other sailors, during long passages and his many years on various islands. This simple how-to explains why the sea never changes despite the incredible progress of technology.

Book News Annotation:

Moitessier was one of the greatest ocean voyagers. He died before completing a practical book on boats, the sea, and the beachcombing life, but his many writings on these subjects, both published and unpublished, are collected here. Part I details how to prepare for an extensive cruise, and Part II describes navigation, watch-keeping, and weather. Part III shows how to live self-sufficiently on an atoll by gardening and fishing. Includes b&w photos, drawings, and diagrams. First published in France as Voile, Mers Lointaines, Iles et Lagons, by Editions Arthaud. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews@booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The long-awaited distillation of all this legendary sailor has to teach those who would go ocean sailing. Discusses choosing the right boat, rig, sails, gear, coping with weather, navigation, watchkeeping. He teaches self-sufficiency and the rudiments of living on an atoll. Here is the technical, practical side of this spiritual man.
