Riassunto: This classsic sailing narrative tells the story of Eric Hiscock and his wife, Susan, who in 1952 set out from Yarmouth, England, in their 30-foot sailing yacht Wanderer III. Just under three years later they arrived back at Yarmouth, having circled the globe by the way of the West Indies, the Panama Canal, Tahiti, Samoa, Fiji, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Ascension, and the Azores, with many other ports of call in route.
About the Author: The late Eric Hiscock bought his first boat in 1934 and wrote about his sailing experiences from that point onwards. He was born in 1908 in Southhampton and in 1941 he married Susan who became his sole crew on the many thousands of miles sailed by successive Wanderers.
Eric and Susan lived aboard Wanderer V and when not cruising were based in the beautiful 'Bay of Islands' on the north eastern coast of New Zealand. They gained an international reputation as adventuresome and popular cruising folk and apart from a string of successful sailing books and articles, lectured widely. Sailors around the world have followed Eric's practical advice based on many lessons learned the hard way--at sea. In 1984 both Eric and Susan were made MBEs for services to ocean sailing. Eric Hiscock died in 1986.
