A Year in a Yawl

by Russell Doubleday, from the log of Capt. Kenneth Ransom

Not long after Joshua Slocum completed his historic circumnavigation, four young men from Michigan set out on another adventure which had never been done before: the Great Circle Route of the Eastern U.S. They built a boat, traveled down the Mississippi, around Florida, up the Eastern Seaboard, and back through the Erie Canal, and home to the Great Lakes. Their youthful enthusiasm and resourcefulness make this classic true story of a century ago a powerful influence on youngsters today. A great adventure tale for sailors and non-sailors of all ages. Powerfully narrated and co-produced by Geoff Safron of Brainstormers! Radio.

Includes a PDF map of Gazelle’s journey, illustrations, CD jacket, and a photo of Gazelle.
