The Long Way No rating

The Long Way is Bernard Moitessier's own incredible story of his participation in the first …

i thought this would be a potentially dry account of his golden globe race, but it is nothing of the sort.

it's full of warmth. tales from his youth in "indochina", as he calls it, woven seamlessly with descriptions of the warm relationships he forms with the animals he comes across during the voyage. there are fantastic tips scattered among the different chapters, expert advice snuck in between two paragraphs musing about the weather. he often yearns for updates on his friends taking on the same voyage, cursing bbc for not including updates on them during their broadcasts. the book is lovely all around
