Description: To have sailed round the world in a 30-foot yacht is an achievement, but to have made two such circumnavigations is probably unique: yet this is what Eric and Susan Hiscock have done. During their second voyage they varied the route as much as possible from that of the first one (described in Around the World in Wanderer III) and, after crossing the Pacific and the Indian Ocean by way of many islands, came home through the Red Sea (a difficult place for small sailing craft) and the Mediterranean. All went according to plan except for one near disaster when the yacht stranded on a shoal off the north coast of Australia, but was dramatically refloated with no serious damage. In this book the author writes not only of the sea-faring aspect of this great voyage but of the places visited and the people met, and the story is vividly illustrated with the Hiscocks’ splendid colour photographs.
‘Eric Hiscock never disappoints his readers, and this is another entertaining volume full of adventure, courage and wisdom . . .’—The Little Ship
‘He possesses the gift of encompassing the reader in his writing - making him share his triumphs, disasters and experiences.’—The Daily Telegraph
