Summary

Summary

That great storyteller of the sea, Tristan Jones, returns with a new collection of yarns, reminiscences, and adventures never before published in book form. Jones carries readers to the sleepy Spanish ports of the 1950s, the pleasures of Buenos Aires in the last days of Peron, and the damp forests of Southeast Asia. He recounts encounters with Bernard Moitessier and pioneering female sailor Clare Francis, as well as a panoply of memorable characters - among them a sailor who owes his life to a disconnected floodlight and a shadowy crewmember whom Jones unwittingly smuggles into Spain.
