About this title


Nicely Illustrated with black & white photographs and maps. This is the story of British citizens Miles and Beryl Smeeton's east to west trip around the Horn, starting in England and finishing in Victoria BC - a 19,000 mile jaunt. This was their 3rd attempt - the first two attempts ended with their boat Tzu-Hang capsizing during the Cape Horn traverse and then ending in a Chilean port. A well-written, exciting tale.
