Along the Clipper Way

By Francis Chichester

Published by: Hodder & Stoughton 1966

Down the Atlantic around the Cape of Good Hope across the Southern Ocean to Australia the clippers went, rolling and pitching towards the rewards of carrying freights of gold, wool and grain. Chichester sails the reader along the great clipper way and then on around Cape Horn and back up the Atlantic to Britain. He has collated the accounts by seamen and writers including Francis Drake, Ernest Shackleton, Miles Smeeton, Conrad, Villiers and Masefield of this 28,500-mile passage around the world. Capsize, dismasting, foundering as well as record runs, blissful sailing and uplifting experiences flow throughout the pages.
