When Tristan Jones was discharged from the Navy, and told he was physically unfit for more seagoing, he got hold of a small craft, Cresswell, which he converted to a cruising ketch and started sailing. Determined to sail further north than anyone else, Jones set out for Iceland, accompanied only by his dog, Nelson. Jones spent two winters full of continuous suspense and danger in this bleak polar region.
