I have never sifted through that other thread, so apologies if these are redundant, but to get started you might consider:
Two Years Before the Mast (Richard Henry Dana)
Narrative of the Wreck of the Whale Ship Essex (Owen Chase)
Voyage of the Liberdade (Joshua SLocum)
Sailing Alone Around the World (Joshua Slocum)
The Last Grain Race (Eric Newby)
Northern Lights (Desmond Holdridge)
Wandering Under Sail (Eric Hiscock)
Voyaging Under Sail (Eric Hiscock)
Vagabonding Under Sail (W.I.B. Crealock)
Dove (Robin Lee Graham)
Fastnet Force 10 (John Rousmaniere)
Maiden Voyage (Tanya Aebie sp?)
Plenty of others to pick from too.
Edit: P.S. Dana, Chase, Newby, Holdridge, Crealock, Graham, and Tanya Aebie were either not much older or somewhat younger than you when they undertook the voyages they wrote about.
