Part of my winter hibernation routine is getting a good "yachting" biography, this year it is Over the Top. It's the story of Adrian Flanagan, the first ever person to sail solo Vertically around the world.
Adrian, like most of the solo sailors, could feel the ocean calling him from a young age, but other than most of us, he took the plunge and made his dream a reality....hats off to you Mr Falangan
This is quite an interesting read about a guys obsession of sailing the seas alone and challenging the conventional sailing routes. It reads more like a story than a boring biography sand I would definitely recommend it for some arm chair sailing this winter with a glass of port or red in hand.
