By: UnknownDuring the years 1994 through 1998, Otti Schmid, a retired SwissAir captain, ventured onto the oceans with his steel-hulled 40-foot Engholm. With little experience on the open seas, Schmid set sail across the Atlantic Ocean to the Panama Canal, the Galapagos, Polynesia and Melanesia, and on to New Zealand and Australia. Some of the passages were done as a single-hander, but more often with different crew members who we meet (as Otti met) during the journey. More than a sailing journey, it is a timeless story about following your dreams and the adventure that falls your way as you strike out on your own. The book was just recently published in English after 3 successful years in print in German.
