The year is 1966, and a pioneering English yachtsman heads south - alone - towards Cape Horn, and into a territory unknown to yachtsmen. This is the tale of a wilderness cruise on the desert coast of Argentina and in the snowy Chilean fjords, but between the two halves, at the summit of the adventure, is the story of a sailor fighting for his life.

A memorable tale of adventure on the turbulent seas of the Great Southern and Atlantic oceans—on one of the most historic voyages of our time—finds its way into paperback. This is William F. Stark's engrossing memoir of the last leg of the Grain Race, and the Pamir's rounding of fearsome Cape Horn—the storm-tossed tip of South America just 600 miles from Antarctica—the veritable Mount Everest of sailing. In 1949, the crew of thirty-four sailors from around the world experienced the shipboard life of the seventeenth century on a four-masted vessel that carried hundreds of acres of sail. In 128 days the Pamir journeyed 16,000 miles from Port Victoria, Australia, to Falmouth, England, through the world's stormiest seas, as Stark worked on decks awash with huge swells, and scrambled up ice-coated rigging to manhandle sails on masts that were up to twenty stories high. Contrasting romance with the realities of life at sea, and poignantly evoking the love affair he left behind to join the Pamir, while punctuating his tale with illuminating photos, maps, and details of maritime history, Stark has written a thrilling book that climaxes the fabled era begun by Cape Horn merchant sailors more than three centuries ago.

Around Cape Horn Once More is the story of the French Bounty Clipper Ship, Montebello. She was built in Nantes, France in 1900 and was lost on the rugged and lonely south coast of Kangaroo Island, South Australia in 1906. This book is a tale of the adventures of the Montebello and the men who sailed her around the globe. It brings to light a period of France's maritime history that has never before been told in such thrilling and dramatic detail. ""we heard the roar of breakers, and then we knew that we were close to the land, and there was still no visible light. All hands turned out to put on canvas with a view to heading the vessel off the shore, but we had received the warning too late and within a few minutes we had struck on the fearful rocks. The ship shivered all over with the shock. I shall never forget the sensation it created. She bumped hard several times and threatened to go to pieces at any moment. The seas broke over her from end to end.""
