Crispin Latymer was an ordinary sailor used to cruising off the coast of England who decided at age 50 to leave the safe shores of home and make his first solo voyage across the Atlantic, the great prize in navigation and seamanship skills.

His three week voyage became an epic story of adventure and personal discovery. Out of sight of land for nearly the entire passage, his journey challenged his skills and resolve at every turn. Within 48 hours of setting sail Latymer was caught by fierce weather in Tropical Storm Delta, he maintained control of his ship despite broken ribs and toe and a frightening incident with pirates off the Mauritanian coast. A dreamer more than an intrepid adventurer, Latymer described it all as “magical” and has written an understated and inspiration memoir of this extraordinary journey which will appeal to anyone who has every aspired to break out of their comfort zone to push the boundaries toward the unknown, what the sailors call “where the ocean meets the sky.”

I have not yet finished this book but am enjoying it. The way it is written allows the reader to visualize what the author was experiencing from moment to moment. I like sea stories and I like to read about other peoples' adventures. People who have the courage and skills to do that kind of adventures amaze me.

Although Crispin Latymer's account of his solo Atlantic crossing is a most interesting and entertaining read for anyone involved in sailing, not just one contemplating a long offshore passage, it is also an account of the author's relationship, or lack thereof, with his father who was also an experienced sailor. I would recommend this book to experienced and well as inexperienced sailors, as well as to those interested in human life stories.

I takes you away to the real world that we live on and rarely consider in our everyday lives. Well written and inspiring a 50 something day sailer to leave port

I was given this book by a sailing friend. That is, a friend who sails--I myself am not a sailor. I thought I would be put off by talk about jibs and tacks and booms and the like, but I was really surprised at how readable the book was for nonsailors. The book provides plenty of details for those interested in solo sailing, but the aspect I found most compelling was the author's openness about his emotions and his relationships. Especially his relationship with father--phew! He did a great job of intertwining meditations and reminiscences about his life with the story of the journey itself. I'm glad I read it...and now I am itching to get going on those goals and dreams I'd set aside as foolish or unattainable.

Before he set out to travel singlehandedly across the Atlantic, Crispin Latymer was a banker who liked to sail. But these 23 days changed his vision and chances are that he is now a sailor working as a banker for a living. Nothing really spectacular happened. Sure, he has been (supposedly) followed by pirates, went through (the fringe of) a tropical storm, suffered several (short) gale episodes in the inter-tropical convergence zone, but what really changed him was wind and water, the endless voyage towards the place "where the ocean meets the sky". In his very simple and honest way, his well written story helps us all to understand why we go to sea. This is a must read for all sailors, even those of us who spent years out there.

I really enjoyed it. It is a good
mix of the nautical techie stuff, with enough boys own adventure to keep one
engaged, but also with an interesting unsentimental insight into the authors
personal life and feelings as he undertook the trip. Honest. Funny. I have
lent my copy to others who have enjoyed it - and not sailors either.
Interesting. It made me both laugh and cry.

This is a fascinating account of one man's solo trip across the Atlantic. I am not a sailor and have no desire to make such an epic voyage myself, however I really enjoyed this book. It is a very frank and honest account of the author's relationship with his father and I highly recommend it.
