The first lone circumnavigation of the globe under sail This book is widely regarded a classic of sailing literature because it is an account written by the sailor who made the first solo navigation of the globe under sail. A biography of Joshua Slocum would make riveting reading in its own right, for inherent in him were all the attributes of the ideal seaman of the latter half of the nineteenth century. An unquenchable spirit of adventure propelled him through many voyages and hairsbreadth escapes from the forces of nature and pirates. In 1895 he set sail from America in 'Spray, ' a 36' 9'' gaff rigged sloop oyster boat he had rebuilt himself. Navigating mainly without using his chronometer and only by 'dead-reckoning' Slocum sailed 'Spray' without actually touching the helm. His circumnavigation, which took three years to complete, covered a distance of some 46,000 miles. His triumphant return to America went virtually unnoticed-because the newspapers were focussed on the recent outbreak of war between Spain and America. This book, detailing his epic voyage and many adventures, was written shortly after his return, was serialised in magazines and became a rapid bestseller, earning glowing encomiums from many notably figures, especially from highly regarded authors of the time, including Arthur Ransome and Mark Twain, which elevated Joshua Slocum to international fame. This edition of his work is beautifully illustrated and is available in soft cover and hard cover with dust jacket. Leonaur hard covers are cloth bound with gold foil lettering on their spines and feature cloth head and tail bands making them ideal for collections or to be presented as a forever treasured gift.

Three years later, after sailing single-handed 46,000 miles around the world, Slocum returned to Newport, Rhode Island. Through this, he was revered by sailors and adventurers around the world. The story of this journey is a classic tale of achievement in the face of overwhelming odds. ""'Walden' without the training wheels."" -Nathaniel Philbrick

Tania Aebi, erste und jüngste amerikanische Weltumseglerin, erzählt erfrischend und geradezu hinreißend die Geschichte ihrer erstaunlichen und in jeder Hinsicht bewegenden 27 000-Meilen-Reise. Sie ist ein flippiger New Yorker Teenager, der mit seiner Clique die Nächte in den Discos herumhängt, als ihr Vater sie vor die Wahl stellt: ab aufs College oder Weltumseglung ? allein. Die 18-Jährige nimmt die Herausforderung an. Aus purer Abenteuerlust, aber auch, um dem Vater zu beweisen, dass sie sehr wohl Stehvermögen hat. Ihre Slup VARUNA ist knapp acht Meter lang. Vom Segeln weiß sie nicht viel mehr als das, was sie sich an Bord der väterlichen Yacht auf einer Atlantik-Überquerung abgeguckt hat. Doch was aus Abenteuerlust begann, wird zu einer Reise der Selbsterfahrung: Stürme, eine Kollision, eine Beinahe-Kenterung, Verletzungen ? sie will durchhalten, um jeden Preis, und sie schafft es. Obwohl sie mehrfach in Versuchung gerät, endgültig aufzugeben. Und sie verliebt sich zweimal. Oliver, ein junger Schweizer, ebenfalls einhand unterwegs, ist es schließlich, der Tania, als sie nach New York zurückkehrt, dort bereits erwartet. Sie hat nicht nur ihn, sondern im doppelten Sinne ?die Welt im Sturm erobert?.

Sailing Alone Around the World by Captain Joshua Slocum. Illustrated by Thomas Fogarty and George Varian. Sailing Alone Around the World is a sailing memoir by Joshua Slocum in 1900 about his single-handed global circumnavigation aboard the sloop Spray. Slocum was the first person to sail around the world alone. The book was an immediate success and highly influential in inspiring later travelers. In the fair land of Nova Scotia, a maritime province, there is a ridge called North Mountain, overlooking the Bay of Fundy on one side and the fertile Annapolis valley on the other. On the northern slope of the range grows the hardy spruce-tree, well adapted for ship-timbers, of which many vessels of all classes have been built. The people of this coast, hardy, robust, and strong, are disposed to compete in the world's commerce, and it is nothing against the master mariner if the birthplace mentioned on his certificate be Nova Scotia. I was born in a cold spot, on coldest North Mountain, on a cold February 20, though I am a citizen of the United States-a naturalized Yankee, if it may be said that Nova Scotians are not Yankees in the truest sense of the word. On both sides my family were sailors; and if any Slocum should be found not seafaring, he will show at least an inclination to whittle models of boats and contemplate voyages.
