Sailing into Solitude – 2011 is the updated version of Val Howells classic account of one of the first single handed yacht race from England to New York, USA across the Atlantic Ocean. Given this was in 1960 and in a 25ft folkboat makes this feat even more remarkable. Originally written in 1966 the author has extensively rewritten the tale publishing it ahead of the paperback on the kindle.
A real classic single handed sailors yarn, updated, and as fresh today as it was in 1966 when the original was published.
