A new edition of John Guzzwell's, Trekka
Round the World. Long out-of-print, 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unpublished photos and a foreword by America's renowned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in this entirely new edition with previously unpublished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.
