: New: Book Report: The Long Way

In this memoir, Bernard Moitessier sails around the world solo. By the end, he either achieves some enlightenment or goes kinda loopy from being on his own for a few months. There is sailing. There is inter-boat communication via slingshot. There is strategic napping. No, really—rather than take on some complex navigation while sleepy, he would heave to and take a nap so he'd be rested. It makes sense—but it's not the first thing you think of when you think of tales of derring-do on the open water.
