About

Francis Chichester's 1967 singlehanded circumnavigation set a blazing record for speed. He completed the voyage with just one stop and 226 days at sea. It was an amazing performance; that he was sixty-five years old made it the more so. This book presents an account of his nine-month journey around the world in his 53-foot ketch Gipsy Moth IV.

The Sailor's Classics library introduces a new generation of readers to the best books ever written about small boats under sail When 65-year-old Francis Chichester set sail on his solitary eastward journey around the world in 1966, many believed he wouldn't return alive. But when the old man returned nine months later, he had made history's fastest circumnavigation.

Illustrated with b&w and colour images, maps and line drawings.
