Re: Small boat voyaging

Years ago my father brought home an interesting fellow named Tristan Jones. He entertained us with hours of sailing adventure tales. He stayed with us for a week or so. I remember one where he was trapped in the ice for a long time. It's all foggy now. I was in high-school then.
Tristan Jones has some great books, and if I remember right, he lost a leg at some point in his life but he keep single handing his sailboat!

A few years ago I met a guy whos family personally knew Bernard Moitessier.
