Re: Looking for Sailing Adventure Books

Tania Aebi's Maiden Voyage changed my life!

Also loved Moitessier: A Sailing Legend by Barrault (offers great insight into the mysterious man that was Moitessier).

Lionheart by Jesse Marin was a good read.

Moitessier read Vito Dumas when he needed insight

his book was a thriller
