Product Description

Adrian Seligman served before the mast in square-rigged ships, then returned home to London, only to find that he had inherited enough money to fulfill his dream of buying a three-masted barquentine and fitting it out for a voyage around the world.

'The Voyage of the Cap Pilar, by Adrian Seligman is an astounding tale that takes place at the end of the so-called 'great age' of sail in which Seligman, after spending three years aboard square-riggers, inherits £3,500. With his 1930s fortune, he buys and refits a moss-covered, 118-foot barquentine, loads it up with a crew of volunteers, and sails around the world. This well-written yarn serves as a window into an era of sailing when world cruising was in its infancy and working sail was on its deathbed, but it speaks as relevantly about the reality of cruising as any modern tale.'
