About this title

Synopsis:

Alone aboard "Acrohc", the tiny yacht he designed and built, Serge Testa sailed around the world and into the Guinness Book of Records. Exotic landfalls, cyclones, encounter with whales, and a nearly fatal fire at sea makes this a gripping story. Told with understatement and humor, this account of a unique voyage of discovery and endurance appeals to the adventurer in all of us. "Serge Testa's 500 Days is a lively, warm and well written account of a seamanlike circumnavigation" -Cruising World "Why would anyone sail around the world on a 12 foot boat? Meet Serge Testa, a charming and resourceful adventurer. Read this book and you too may find yourself planning the adventure of a lifetime." -SAIL

From the Author:

I knew I had a strong and seaworthy boat, but after all, she was only 11 feet 10 inches long. How would she react to big waves, storms or even cyclones? Would she ever capsize? And would I be able to put up with the continuous pounding and rolling, or would I end up as crazy as people thought I was? The best way to find out was to try.
