John Guzzwell’s, Trekka Round the World, is a classic international story of Guzzwell’s circumnavigation on his 20-foot yawl Trekka. During his voyage, John leaves Trekka to crew for the Smeatons aboard Tzu Hang, and off Cape Horn, they survive a pitchpole. In the 1999 edition epilogue, Guzzwell recounts his experiences and sailing adventures since the book first appeared in the 1960s, includes a foreword by America’s renowned bluewater sailor-author Hal Roth, previously unpublished anecdotes and photographs, including his recent accomplishments in his Endangered Species, in which he competed in the 1998 Singlehanded TransPac Race.
