by Jimmy Cornell
Jimmy Cornell has influenced the contemporary cruising scene more than any other sailor. An accomplished navigator, public speaker and author, he has sailed over 200,000 miles in all oceans of the world, from Antarctica to the Arctic, including three circumnavigations. Jimmy has written some of the bestselling nautical books in the world, which have been translated into several languages.
Sail The World With Me is based on Jimmy’s extensive knowledge of offshore sailing gained over five decades of roaming the oceans of the world. The book deals with all essential aspects of offshore voyaging in an informative and entertaining manner, backed up by telling incidents from the author’s wide-ranging experience.
In contrast to Jimmy Cornell’s previous books in which, as a professional journalist, he was careful to remain impartial, this book is a memoir in which the author does not shy from expressing personal opinions drawn from his own experience. He is also candid about the events that shaped his character and his passion for the sea. The book features many anecdotes from his eventful life, both afloat and ashore.
Primarily aimed at sailors planning or making preparations for a longer voyage, this book will also appeal to accomplished ocean navigators as well as weekend sailors.
Sail The World With Me is based on Jimmy Cornell’s earlier book 200,000 Miles A Life of Adventure (2017), and A Passion for the Sea published in five languages in 2007 and now out of print.
