Få igjen på lager. Kommer ikke tilbake.


Galway Blazer was one of the most famous yachts in the world. Whe was built by Commander Bill King for his attempt to make a single-handed non-stop circumnavigation in the challenging early years of single-handers and against competition from legendary sailors such as Robin Knox-Johnson, Sir Francis Chichester and Blondie Hassler. She was a fast, elegant yacht with an unusual junk rig. King failed in his attempt, having been capsized and holed, but he managed to sail Galway Blazer to safety.

After her repair she was used in other long-distance single-handed races, notably the famous OSTAR (Observer Single-handed Transatlantic Race) series, until Bill King retired friom competitive sailing and the boat passed into the hands of Peter Crowther. He followed in the tradition of single and short-handed racing, but also used the boat for cruising with his family. This is the story of Galway Blazer and Crowther's love affair with the boat. It includes exciting narrative, relating adventures during many classic single-handed events and is interspersed with practical advice for would-be lone sailors.

Galway Blazer is, alas, no more. She sank in the Atlantic, after structural damage occurred in heavy weather. The story of this sinking and Peter Crowther's mid-Atlantic rescue are of course included.
