The Cruise of the Snark

Regattas expeditions adventures. Stories of men and their boat

 

Just him, the writer known for novels such as "The Iron Heel", "Martin Eden", "White Fang" and "The Call of the Wild" had a dream ... navigate.

A dream turned into a project and then became a reality.

Regattas expeditions adventures. Stories of men and their boat 

 

iron gateLet's begin our stories about the world of sailing with 2 adventures: there are 2 men and their boats but a big absent ... the sea. Instead of it we find the rivers but at the end they will lead us to the sea. And not just a sea but the Black Sea, a small piece of the “mare nostrum” the Mediterranean Sea.

We will tell you by Simone Pierotti and his “Tamarin” and Giacomo de Stefano and his “Ness Yawl”.

Happy reading.
