Trekka Round the World


John Guzzwell built Trekka, his 20-foot yawl, from plans by Laurent Giles. Then he sailed single-handed around the world. This book is wonderfully narrated by the author.

John Guzzwell never considered world records or looked for sponsors. He was in his early 20s when he began this project and was not yet 30 by the time he completed his circumnavigation. Trekka Round the World, his classic tale of this adventure, inspired many of today’s sailors.

This wonderful tale by a talented, yet unassuming, young man is quite possibly the best book written about circumnavigating in the 1950s. The fact that John narrates this tale 50 years later makes this audiobook a must-have release for all who now follow in his wake and those who dream of doing so.
