            In 2007, Kiwi musician and radio personality Andrew Fagan set sail in his 5.4 metre plywood yacht, Swirly World, to circumnavigate New Zealand. And just to make it more difficult, the outspoken Fagan included a leg to the sub-Antarctic Auckland Islands in the notorious Southern O...cean. All in all he sailed over 3000 miles in two months. Facing such potentially lethal conditions in such a tiny craft took careful planning mixed with extreme determination, serious fortitude and uncommon daring. In this account of his voyage, Fagan tells of having to avoid icebergs, sailing through a force ten storm in the Southern Ocean and visiting sites of shipwrecks at Port Ross in the Auckland Island group: 'With the genuine concern of a very fatigued person, I was sailing for my life and I knew it!' In a country fed on a regular diet of exceptional sailing feats, his voyage was immediately embraced and celebrated. Swirly World Sails South is a sharply accurate and humorous narrative blend written from Andrew's journal accounts and accompanied by photographs. He offers a unique and refreshing perspective on the world of solo sailing, bringing the intensity and self-doubt alive and revealing the extreme emotional endurance required in order to complete such a long and multi-faceted journey alone.

            "To be on the sea is something magical. It is to be under fleeting illusion of being free and beyond the reach of the land with its attendant frustrations and pettiness. Under sail you are immediately confronted with a simple set of rules that require you to observe intently and ...engage your entire being in the enterprise of moving across the ocean. Despite the enormity of this effort the sailor has little effect on the sea. The wake of a yacht is quickly zipped up behind leaving no trace of your passing. The same cannot be said of the sea's effect on the sailor. It subtly unzips you, pulling out the stuffing that has lay buried by life on the land. How to Sail a Boat is an examination of some of that stuffing, revealing things about the sailor only the sea might know"--Publisher information.
