Year In A Yawl

It is the story of four adventurers setting out on a 7,000-mile voyage aboard a 30-foot home-built yawl, the Gazelle . Their cruise leads from the shores of Lake Michigan to the Mississippi, south to the Gulf of Mexico rounding Florida, north along the Eastern Seaboard and then finally home to the Great Lakes.

Amazingly, it was a voyage accomplished in an engineless boat. Crew members towed the craft through locks with ropes over their shoulders.

The crew was armed for hunting and actually shot ducks from their sailboat. Turtles were killed as a food supply on the beach below the lighthouse on Gasparilla Island on Florida's west coast. They were lost on Captive Island, today's Florida tourist mecca known as Captiva Island.
