3 Tew, Captain Ian Sailing in Grandfather's Wake
1574091417 / 9781574091410; A volume of Reed's Maritime Library. Here is a seafaring adventure spanning three generations. In 1938, Caplin, skippered by Commander R. D. Graham with his daughter Marguerite as mate, set out from England to sale around the world. Sixty years later, Commander Graham's grandson, Captain Ian Tew, bought Independent Freedom in New York and, with his aunt's account of the voyage as a guide, sailed in Caplin's wake. The side-by-side accounts of their navigation to remote shores provide a fascinating historical perspective against which the calms and storms of sailing are ageless. 218 pages, including maps of the voyage and photographs, some in color. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
