Riassunto: For centuries boats had been built as strongly as possible to withstand the enormous power of the sea. But Patrick & Colin had a theory that if you built one as lightly as possible, she would lift over the tops of the waves and so survive. To rove it they had built the smallest boat that would carry two men and their stores. Then they sailed more than 10,000 miles, to four continents before arriving in New York, their destination. This is a true tale of high adventure in our time, and takes you away from the problems of this century into a world where man by his skill and judgement must make use of the vast elemental forces of nature to bring him safely to the place where he would be.
L'autore: Patrick Ellam was born in England, joined the army at the start of World War II then volunteered to drop alone by parachute behind the enemy lines and spent the rest of the war in the Special Operations Executive, as he described in his book Things I Remember. Then after crossing the Atlantic Ocean in Sopranino, he married June Emery and they spent 10 years in the yacht delivery business, as described in their book Wind Song. Colin Mudie was a hostage from the designer's office.
