Description: This is the remarkable story of Maurice and Katie Cloughley's five-year,
round-the-world voyage in the 34-foot ketch Nanook—the kind of
cruise that every yachtsman dreams about. The Cloughleys sailed the
world's great cruising grounds and visited the world's most exotic ports:
through the Mediterranean, where they spent their first winter; the
Caribbean; the idyllic islands of the South Pacific; New Zealand; New
Guinea, and westward across the Indian Ocean. Each leg of the voyage
was an adventure, and each passage is described with wit and
good humor. A World to the West is packed with practical information —
a sailor's sharing of knowledge about short-handed cruising.
The appendices cover Route Planning, Heavy Weather Handling,
and Provisioning and Finance. They are invaluable guides for any
bluewater sailor.
The Cloughleys cruised on a shoestring in a simple but able boat.
A World to the West is their tale of fascinating peoples and places,
and the joys and frustrations of long and lonely ocean passages.
