From the cover: “On Friday, 14 June 1968, Suhaili, a tiny ketch, Jow in the water under the weight of her stores and looking strangely self-conscious with the bright orange vanes of her outrigged self-steering gear, slipped quietly and almost unnoticed out of Falmouth harbour in Cornwall. His family and a few friends in a single launch waved goodbye to the solitary figure at Suhaili’s helm; a modest, likeable, unknown, 29-year-old Merchant Navy officer, Robin Knox-Johnston.
