1986

W.W. Norton and Company

Covers the 1984 OSTAR (Observer Single-handed Transatlantic Race) completed by the author in his Westsail 32, Johan Lloyde. Of 92 starters, he finished 61st overall and 10th in Class. The Westsail had first been single handed to England in order to start the race back to the USA. From home to England and back, the little sailboat moved her keel over more than 8500 miles of water. Interestingly,  Johan Lloyde had been purchased by the author in 1974 as a "Sailaway Kit". The book is good reading.
