Here's what you say about us...

This book will take you back to the end of the sailing era, with a story of the around the world voyage of the 212-ton ship JOSEPH CONRAD. The original edition of this book was published in 1937, and it is just as entertaining, and a lot more informative in today's world of automatic pilots and super-tankers. Go back to the real days of sail with this well written account of a world voyage.

Latitudes & Attitudes

In any day or age, Australian-born Alan Villiers would have been a remarkable man. Before he died in 1982, he had crammed all manner of adventures and achievements into his life, written more books than most sailors make ocean crossings, and fulfilled perhaps his greatest ambition, to find, equip and sail a full rigged ship around the world.

[reading this] I felt as though I already knew the man who would lead his band of sailors and his sturdy ship on an extraordinary journey, packed with adventure, near disasters, and triumphs. It is a fine read, and there are interesting maps (line drawings), old photographs, and plans of the ship to complement the text.
