Bestic, Albert Arthur   
Published:   1957
Publisher:Evans Brothers Ltd.
Tags:autobiography, non-fiction, sailing, seafaring, travel

An account of the author's first voyage as an apprentice in a windjammer in the year 1908. The vessel, named Denbigh Castle, sailed from Wales to Peru, but it took more than a year for it to reach its destination. It braved countless gales trying to round Cape Horn, achieving that only after several months of struggle. A voyage, in the author's word, "perhaps unique in the annals of sail."
