Cornell, Jimmy:  Around the World Rally
Book Number: 26303
Adlard Coles Nautical, 1993 8vo softcover 208pp index, b/w illus. very good. This book provides an analysis of the way in which 36 different cruising boats, their equipment and their crews performed during 16 months and 24,000 miles of tough ocean sailing. Europa 92, the first round the world rally for cruising boats, brought together these yachts in an event which visited 18 countries, covering between them over 600,000 miles. This international fleet, ranging from 40 to 72 feet, formed a cross-section of current cruising boat design, and both boats and crews were well tried and tested during their voyage around the world. This book gives an insight into the successes and failures experienced by the participants. Divided into sections covering all aspects of cruising from equipment, instruments, sails and maintenance to provisioning, navigation and watchkeeping, its conclusions offer lessons to any sailor, whether cruising in home water or planning a circumnavigation.
