." . . a priceless work as straightforward and unpretentious as the man who composed it . . . No essential topic is left untreated, and the result is a unique window into the way Moitessier the master solved problems that voyagers in the tropics confront all the time . . . The read is personable and easygoing, the format eclectic enough to make every page jump out at you with something new and instructive."
"Amid the anecdotes and sound advice the humanist philosophy of the adventurer/writer shines through . . ."
About the Author
Bernard Moitessier was one of the greatest ocean voyagers. He became a legend in his own time. Born in 1925 in Indochina, he gained much of his sailing knowledge from the fishermen of the Gulf of Siam. A gifted writer, he wrote four books describing his seagoing adventures, including the major autobiographical work Tamata and the Alliance.

This book is different it is very much a 'How To' manual. While it is all fascinating information a great deal of it is probably only actually relevant if you sail a wooden or steel boat and do all of your own maintenance. If you sail a GRP boat, as most of us do these days and get the yard to do all the hard bits of maintenance (that you feel you do not have the skills for), then it is a much less useful read.
For the serious sailor you have to read it becuase it is Moitessier and for the section on ground tackle.
