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.

Review:

Serge Testa's 500 Days is a lively, warm and well written account of seamanlike circumnavigation. -- Cruising World
