In 1985, at the age of 18, Tania Aebi set out to sail around the world alone. In this volume she presents a compendium of sailing experience and reflections. It is suitable reading for the armchair sailor dreaming about sailing one day, as well as the sailor in the cockpit actively chasing those horizons.
