This book covering both my 2006 and 2013 attempts at a non-stop singlehanded circumnavigation was launched at the Shetland Times bookshop in Lerwick on Sat 29th October.
Besides telling the story of the two long trips the book also describes building Elsi and a little pre-history of how I came to do the trips.
Copies are available at the Shetland Times Bookshop and also on Amazon.
This website is a record of Andrew Halcrow’s attempt at a solo non-stop circumnavigation in 2013/2014 onboard Elsi Arrub.
The proposed route was from Falmouth down through the North and South Atlantic then round Cape Horn. Up the west coast of South America, across the South Pacific in the SE trades to the Torres Straits. Across the Indian Ocean, round the Cape of Good Hope and back up to Falmouth. Departure from Falmouth was November 4th 2013.
Andrew would like to thank everyone who has helped in any way or has passed on good wishes.
