PortraitBernard 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.
Pressestimmen"This is the story of Bernard and Francoise Moitessier's honeymoon voyage aboard JOSHUA, sailing from Europe to the islands of the Pacific and back by way of Cape Horn, the logical route, which is the fastest way. A true classic by and about one of cruising's best known authors." -- Latitudes & Attitudes, October 2003 "Latitudes & Attitudes"
