On Friday 14 June 1968 Suhili, a tiny ketch, slipped almost unnoticed out of Falmouth harbour, steered by the solitary figure at her helm, Robin Knox-Johnston. Ten and half months later Suhili, paintwork peeling and rust-streaked, her once white sails weathered and brown, her self-steering gone, her tiller arm jury-rigged to the rudder head, came romping joyously back to Falmouth to a fantastic reception for Robin, who had become the first man to sail round the world non-stop single-handed. By every standard it was an incredible adventure, perhaps the last great uncomputerized journey left to man. Every hazard, every temptation to abandon the astounding voyage came Robin's way, from polluted water tanks, smashed cabin top and collapsed boom to lost self-steering gear and sheered off tiller, and all before the tiny ketch had fought her way to Cape Horn, the point of no return, the fearsome test of any seaman's nerve and determination. A World of My Own is Robin's uninhibited account of one of the greatest sea adventures of our time

"Sir Robin Knox-Johnston is Britain's greatest living sailor and in this fabulous hardback book he shares a collection of distilled wisdom, acute observations and fascinating anecdotes. Knox-Johnston On Sailing is a selection of the most provoking, insightful and perceptive columns from the pages of Yachting World magazine. Sir Robin has been a columnist for this leading racing and cruising magazine for more than a decade. His writing ranges from the latest developments in sailing to reflections on his long and accomplished career. Sir Robin tells it like it is, and this 'best of' selection will serve to educate and entertain in equal measure. The spotlight of his steely gaze falls upon the great ocean races and the brave men and women who compete in them. He considers the lessons of seamanship he learned over hundreds of thousands of miles at sea--and he looks ahead, considering the future of sailing for racing and cruising yachtsmen. The chapters are arranged by topic with an introduction to each one setting the scene. A comprehensive index makes this a useful reference book as a well as wonderful title to dip in and out of. Sir Robin's views are forthright, compelling and based on a breathtaking wealth of experience"--
