Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Francis Chichester's 1967 singlehanded circumnavigation set a blazing record for speed. He completed the voyage with just one stop and 226 days at sea. It was an amazing performance; that he was sixty-five years old made it the more so. This book presents an account of his nine-month journey around the world in his 53-foot ketch Gipsy Moth IV.
