Description: In 1938, Caplin, skippered by Commander RD Graham with his daughter Marguerite as mate, set out from England to sail around the world. Sixty years later Cdr Graham's grandson, Captain Ian Tew, brought Independent Freedom in New York and, with his aunt's account of the voyage as his guide, sailed in Caplin's wake.
The side-by-side accounts of their navigation to remote shores provide a fascinating historical perspective against which the calms and storms of sailing are ageless.
Born into a seafaring family reaching back to a notoriously successful 17th century privateer, Ian Tew was learning to sail at the age of seven. He made his career in the British Merchant Navy and then as a salvor in the Middle and Far East but, after returning to the UK in 1991 to run a small business, has returned to wind and canvas.
