About the Author

Bernard Moitessier was one of the greatest ocean voyagers. He became a legend in his own time. Born in 1925 in Indochina, he gained much of his sailing knowledge from the fishermen of the Gulf of Siam. A gifted writer, he wrote four books describing his seagoing adventures, including the major autobiographical work Tamata and the Alliance.

Reviews

...a priceless work as straightforward and unpretentious as the man who composed it...No essential topic is left untreated, and the result is a unique window into the way Moitessier the master solved problems that voyagers in the tropics confront all the time...The read is personable and easygoing, the format eclectic enough to make every page jump out at you with something new and instructive. Blue Water Sailing Amid the anecdotes and sound advice the humanist philosophy of the adventurer/writer shines through... Classic Boat
