I am really going to have to move Moitessier’s book to the top of my Amazon wish list with Knox-Johnston not too far behind. A Voyage from Madmen gives a decent insight into these characters, but like anything it is good to go back to a firsthand source. This kind of also makes me wonder why no one has published Crowhurst’s last philosophical ramblings. From the few excerpts I have heard or read they seem morbidly interesting.
Shane ... not sure which one you are referring to but he wrote four. Since Moitessier has always been my favorite, I have them all and would definitely recommend reading them in the order he wrote them. The order would be ... "Sailing to the Reefs", then "Cape Horn: The Logical Route", then "The Long Way", and finally "Tamata and the Alliance". "Tamata.." was my favorite, but save it for last, it pulls a lot together.

Thanks – if it is going to make a difference I would prefer to start at the beginning!
