The book 'Sail' around the world in 80 pages' covers many interesting facts of the great discovery voyages as well as some in depth information about our Oceans. With topics as diverse as "Who discovered America?" (it was not Columbus, that is for sure), "Whaling in the Azores", Utopia, the chronometer of James Harrison and Napoleon at Saint Helena or: slavery, pollution of the oceans and overfishing.
The idea was born on 2 long sailing trips on the Atlantic Oceaan, first voyage from Simonstown (SA) round Cape of Good Hope, via Namibia to Fortaleza in Brazil and the second trip from Sint Maarten (Caribean) via Bermuda and the Azores to Europe.
A continuous book of 80 pages in a harmonica form, meaning you get 80 full-colour front pages and 80 reverses with drawings, etchings and info-graphics.
It is interactive, all images in the book have numbers which, with the correct webaddress, will send you to a large archive (resources.html) on the internet with much more information.
It is handbound in a piece of sail from sy-GEMINI, the sailing boat with which the voyages were made.
