Product description


Few yachtsmen are unfamiliar with the name Tristan Jones. Having published 16 books on his world voyages, Outward Leg follows the late (sailor) on a voyage from San Diego to London. Jones was an old-style adventurer: a maritime free-thinker with a stainless steel backbone. His quirky sense of humor, honest (and oddly timeless) prose style is spliced with the kind of mad-yet-accurate insight which comes when a man spends too much time alone. Try this one on for size: There are no people on the face of the earth so adept at transforming a dream into a reality as Americans... No people anywhere are so capable of absorbing a dream so thoroughly that it becomes a part of them, and they champion it, devote an amazing amount of energy to it and transform it and, if you are not every careful, destroy it. Yachts & Yachting After having his leg amputated and spending seven years ashore, Tristan Jones decided to return to sea. In October 1983, Jones and his only crew member, Wally Rediske, set out from San Diego in OUTWARD LEG, a 36-foot trimaran, intending to circumnavigate the world from west to east by sail.
