A Tanimbar Experience
244 pages - illustrated maps - photographs. The cruising yacht Lowana IV goes on a 5-week sailing voyage to a remote group of islands in the far-eastern region of Indonesia. The story depicts the skipper's often-humorous view of the journey in a 30-foot cruising yacht with four crewmembers, two of whom have no open-water sailing experience. The pace is hectic with a near disaster that threatened the voyage right from the start. Hard sailing in heavy winds, knockdowns, close encounters with invisible reefs, secluded villages with sumptuous feasts is capped with ancient history and interesting local cultures. The description of a savage storm at sea makes the book hard to put down.
