This is quite a rare publication – the very first release of the Alain Colas’ story of the voyage around the planed he undertook back in 1978 on board his seventy-foot craft by the name of Minerva, a trimaran one. The text of the volume is truly fascinating as the author is sharing his own experience and his thoughts in the pages of this brilliant volume.

There are numerous images that have been included by the author to supplement the narrative part of his book. Note that the author is the winner of the world famous and traditional Transatlantic Race which he had won back in 1972 before making preparations for this voyage. It is not only about the victory – he also set a world record! Straight after that, the decision was made to undertake a thirty-thousand mile passage with the only stop in the Sydney city of Australia.

The subject voyage took him almost one hundred and seventy days, each of them being interesting enough to be told about in a book. Should you have some free time, have a sit with this book, read it and enjoy. The publication is aimed at anyone in love for the sea and sailing, adventures and bravery – you will find enough of that in this book so do not delay and start tonight – you will like it.
