Aboard an American Classicby George Moffett
The Mystic Seaport sail-training schooner Brilliant sailed across the Atlantic as part of the Tall Ships 2000 race, winning the competition and visiting European ports before sailing home by way of the Carribean in 2001. This book is the email log of Brilliant's 2000-01 voyage, told with the immediacy of entries hastily sent as North Atlantic squalls drove water across the deck, with the thrill of participating in an event that drew a million spectators in the Netherlands, and in the family spirit of a crew that gathered for a traditional New England Thanksgiving dinner at sea.
5 ½"x 8 ½", 217 pages, 24 pages of illustration, appendices, glossary, paperback binding.
