Description

Like other young dreamers, Katie and Maurice Cloughley bought a boat and set off around the world. They met while taking sailing lessons in the west of England and after getting married, they worked for six years in northern Canada, earning the money for their ideal boat. When they found her, they renamed her Nanook of the North, planned for a five-year voyage, and sailed away. This is the story of that first circumnavigation, with all its excitement and terror, adventure and fun, told by a gifted writer.
