Product description

Product Description

At the age of 67, Henry Holt struck off on a sailing adventure that would become a six-year voyage unlike any other way of seeing the world. The people he met and the challenges he faced along the way – from bureaucratic headaches at ports, to truly frightening weather events, to isolation from his friends and family while relying on their help from afar – only strengthened his commitment to the journey. Around the World in Six Years is an account of sailing lessons and life lessons in equal measure. Dramatic, funny, and heartfelt, it is an account of an ordinary man on an extraordinary trip, and will inspire the aspiring adventurer in every reader.
