Synopsis: After seven years ashore and having had his left leg amputated, Tristan Jones decided to return to the sea, hoping to inspire other handicapped people. In October 1983, Jones and his only crew member, Wally Rediske, set out from San Diego in a 36-foot trimaran, intending to circumnavigate the world from west to east by sail. This is story of Tristan's preparation for this major seagoing event and the chronicle of half of it. (continued in Improbable Voyage"). Tristan sailed down the west coast of Central America through the Panama Canal to Colombia, where he had to fight for survival among hostile natives, drug dealers and uncoooperative port officers. He went on to Venezuela, Aruba and the Dominican Republic during its 1984 revolution. Finally he reached New York and crossed the Atlantic to return to St Katherine's Dock in London where he began his seagoing life, thirty years before."

About the Author: Tristan Jones is one of the best-known authors of sailing stories. A Welshman, he left school at age 14 to work on sailing barges and spent the rest of his life at sea. The author of 16 books, Jones lived in Phuket, Thailand, until he died at the age of 71 in June 1995. All his books have been reissued by Sheridan House.

Book Description Gardners Books, 1999. Paperback. Condition: Used: Good. Paperback - 1999 - good condition - used books, secondhand books, out of print books, hard to find books, second-hand books, nonfiction, non-fiction books delivered world wide. Less than a year after his left leg was amputated, Jones set sail aboard a 36-foot trimaran, Outward Leg , in an attempt to circumnavigate the globe. Jones wanted to prove to himself and to other handicapped people that disability need not mean the end of adventures. Jones successfully sailed 14,800 miles and encountered a variety of ne'er-do-wells and drug smugglers in the process. This account of his experiences is fast-paced and exciting, much in the tradition of his The Incredible Voyage and Adrift. Jones begins with a brief account of how he lost his leg and the experiences that drove him to make the voyage. Financial difficulties and need for a crew delayed him, but Outward Leg finally set sail from San Diego. At ports all over the world the fraternity of sailors cheered him on. Jones made his point, and his account is well worth reading. Susan Ebershoff-Coles, Indianapolis-Marion Cty. P.L. Copyright 1986 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Book Description After seven years ashore and after having his left leg amputated, Tristan Jones decided to return to the sea. He began to piece together Operation Star and found the perfect vessel in a 36-foot trimaran. In October 1983, Jones and his only crew member, Wally Rediske, set out in Outward Leg from San Diego, intending to circumnavigate the world from west to east by sail. The book is the exciting story of Tristan's preparation for this major seagoing event and the chronicle of half of it. Tristan sailed down the western coast of Central America through the Panama Canal to a small Colombian town. There he had to fight for survival among hostile natives, drug dealers, and uncooperative port officers. He went on to Venezuela, Aruba, and the Dominican Republic during its 1984 revolution. Finally he reached New York and crossed the Atlantic to return to St. Katharine's Dock in London where he began his seagoing life thirty years before. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
