Publisher's Summary

Legendary account of the author's voyage around Cape Horn in a 32-foot sailboat, sailing east to west (thus the Horn is to starboard, or on the right). This is a notoriously difficult and dangerous passage, especially in a boat this size.

Oh well

I love John Kretschmer as a writer. But just as he has gotten better as a sailor so has his writing. This was an earlier product. Worth listening to but not as enjoyable as his later works.

Enjoyable and a good read/listen

This was the third book that I’ve encounter from John Kretschmer, and I believe the first he wrote. He has a wonderful way of storytelling with useful information in the story. I am looking forward to reading his new book that just came out. One of my favorite seagoing authors.

Great book!

I like all of John's books. Great story! very entertaining! seems to be missing details that are covered in his other books. I guess that's how he keeps you coming back!
