Longdistance sailing

Long-distance yachtsmen and women sail the lonely oceans to prove they can do it, or do it faster. American Joshua Slocum was the first to sail around the world alone. His inspirational book, Sailing Alone Around the World, was published in 1900 and has been rarely out of print since.

Slocum's Spray was a 36-ft (10.9-m) converted oyster sloop and was 100 years old before he set sail from Boston in 1895. Spray was modest but she steered well and sailed well in rough seas. Slocum finally reached home after two years and two months at sea. Others, such as the American Harry Pidgeon (below), followed. Some cruised in a leisurely way, others claimed "firsts" by choosing the more arduous routes.
