4 stars are a bit generous but it was the right book at the right time and I may never read any more of his books. I've learned a lot about sailing techniques that I'll never need but a privilege to spend time with such a unique man. The most fascinating of the round the world golden globe mad men, this book earned him the money to make the boat he sailed in and a window on how he became the man to do it.
