Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

This is the story of a happy family at sea. Guy Bernardin, a French racing sailor, buys a replica of the "Spray" and takes his wife and three-year-old son on a circumnavigation retracing most of Joshua Slocum's famous voyage. First the family cross the Atlantic where they escape Hurricane Chantal, and then sail via the Azores, Tenerife, Culebra, the Panama Canal, the Pacific, and the Tuamotus to Australia, the Indian Ocean, South Africa, and then across the South Atlantic with a stop at St Helena, and back to Newport, Rhode Island, in time to participate in the Slocum anniversary celebrations. There is an introduction by Herb McCormick, editor of "Cruising World" and yachting correspondent for the "New York Times".

About the Author:

Guy Bernardin is a French racing sailor. He competed in the OSTAR (Observer Singlehanded Transatlantic Race) and the BOC Challenge races of the 1980s and the Vendee Globe in 1990. In 1992 he gave up solo yacht racing, and bought the Spray. He now divides his time between his native France and the United States.
