In May 1946, John Caldwell, stranded in Panama afetr the war, set out single-handed on a 9,000 mile journey aboard the 29-foot PAGAN to rejoin his wife in Sydney.

A must read for all would-be voyagers. Latitude 38 [An] astounding tale of courage and adventure...an engaging, well-written story that combines elements of romance with incredible adventure, farce and foolhardiness. If ever there was an argument for the benefits of sail training, this book cements it. Riveting stuff. Sailing Today One of the classic 'How I did it on a shoe-string in an unsuitable boat, knowing nothing about sailing' books...A good read and hooray for the days when people could do this sort of thing without attracting condemnation.
