In 1982, filmmaker, invetory & artist Yves Gelinas set out to sail solo & nonstop around the world, via the fabled Great Capes, in his beloved Alberg 30 'Jean-du-Sud.' He recounts the voyage, which nearly ended in disaster when he was rolled & dismasted near Cape Horn, here for the first time in English, some 30 years after the book was originally published in French.
