Product Description

The mysterious, dangerous and largely unfrequented waters of Tierra del Fuego and Patagonia are the setting for this story of a Millennium cruise in the 36-foot classic wooden yacht, Marelle. At the climax of the nine-month voyage, which began and ended in Falmouth, England, lay Cape Horn, the most challenging cape for generations of sailors.

The author complements the drama of his own voyage with colourful tales from the heroic age of seafaring - of the adventurers who braved these hostile seas, from Magellan and Drake to Cook, Fitzroy and Darwin.

Ben Pester was born in New Zealand, and served as a naval officer in England. Since retiring from a subsequent career in commerce, he has indulged himself in his passion for ocean sailing.

'An enjoyable read and an interesting insight into that part of the world.'
- Royal Naval Sailing Association
