A world of my own (Robin Knox-Johnston)

Finished this last month but forgot to put something up on the blog. After reading Moitessier I remembered that I had this on my bookshelf, inherited from my father (and it is a signed first edition no less). Again, a very interesting story, but the national stereotypes were out in full - where Moitessier was romantic and philosophical Knox-Johnston is pragmatic and dutiful. A good read though, and it does make me want to do a long journey like that one day.
