Recommended Read for Offshorers - Little Boat Big Ocean

Another book that you may find enlightening is 'Little Boat Big Ocean' by UK author Alan Rush. A detailed transcript of his sailing log that he made whilst crossing the Pacific in 1979 from British Columbia to San Francisco to the Hawaiian Islands and beyond, single-handed in a 21ft wooden sail boat. As well as beautifully detailing his journey and the conditions he endured, it also vividly describes the time he spent working as a Relief Manager of a coconut plantation on a remote coral atoll called Fanning Island. Highly recommended read. Do let me know if you have also read it and, if so, what you thought of it.

The book can be found on Amazon Amazon.com: Little Boat Big Ocean (9781907652462): Alan Rush: Books.
