Cape Horn: The Logical Route: 14,216 Miles Without Port of Call Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This is more than the narrative of a voyage. It tells of the Moitessiers' honeymoon trip from Europe to the islands of the Pacific and back along the "logical route" via Cape Horn, a path chosen for its speed. Their path took them through the Roaring Forties, iceberg territory, and the relentless gale-force winds of the higher latitudes. Moitessier tells the story of JOSHUA, the long dreamt-of boat that became a reality, and how he recovered from the loss of his previous boat, which he'd built himself, and returned to his great love: sailing the world's oceans. This book is also a mariner's guide to the pleasures and perils of sailing the Trade Winds, the archipelagos of the Pacific, and the Cape Horn route, including preparation suggestions and a wealth of the sailing survival knowledge that made the Moitessiers' voyage so successful and joyous.
