Re: Small boat voyaging

"Trekka Round the World" by John Guzzwell. Under 28 you say! A mega-yacht that is!

Guzzwell went around the world in Trekka which is 20ft. His detour with the Smeetons where he is pitchpoled (in a bigger boat) off Cape Horn makes the book 2 great reads in one.

Sadly, this is not current though. He sailed in the 1950s if I recall.
