A bestseller title devoted to the round-the-world ocean trip by the authors. The content of the book presents a contrast to so many other publications about the bluewater voyages. The volume will tell readers a nice story of the cruise - according to the numerous reviews submitted by the readers, the book will present particular interest to the people willing to get some practical advice in connection with the long-distance sailing.

The adventure started the very moment when Yanghan left Stockholm port. Both of the authors have left their jobs intending to undertake the completely different sort of challenge - just imagine, they wanted to circumnavigate the planet. The book contains all information about this remarkable travel, and this not the most valuable part of it. In fact, there is something much more important - the personal impressions of the sailors.

The authors have shared their personal experience, they have provided some practical tips on how sailors should equip their yachts to be able to cope with the circumnavigation in various conditions, they have given some practical criteria to be applied to the route and weather analysis. This is not a navigation or seamanship textbook - the volume is rather aimed to show people what can be done by someone who has made a decision to change his lifestyle and move to a new kid of life...
