9780938665564: Trekka Round the World

A new edition of John Guzzwell's, Trekka Round the World. This international classic is the story of John's circumnavigation on his 20-foot yawl Trekka. During his voyage John leaves Trekka to crew for the Smeatons aboard Tzu Hang, and off Cape Horn they survive a pitchpole. In a new epilogue Guzzwell recounts his experiences and sailing adventures since the book first appeared in the 1960s; included are previously unpublished photos and a foreword by America's renowned bluewater sailor-author Hal Roth.

John Guzzwell updates his classic in this entirely new edition with previously unpublished anecdotes and photographs. Included are John's recent accomplishments in his Endangered Species, in which he competed in the 1998 Singlehanded TransPac Race.

About the Author:

John Guzzwell, one of the world's great singlehanded sailors, was born in England and grew up in the Channel Islands where he spent most of his time on and around boats. John and his family were interned in Germany during World War II. Afterward, John learned the profession of boat joiner and then emigrated to British Columbia. At the age of 22, he began construction of Trekka, the boat in which he was to make his voyage around the world. John now makes his home in Washington where he builds custom boats. He still sails, and recently completed the Singlehanded TransPac Race from San Francisco to Hawaii in Endangered Species, a half-scale model of a B.O.C. racing sailboat which he built himself. John is author of Trekka 'Round the World.
