This book was first published in December 2016 and has been so popular it has already been reprinted twice!
Into the Southern Ocean by Andrew Halcrow tells the epic tale of circumnavigating the world on a five year voyage on the yacht Elsi Arrub, built by the author and his brother. Andrew’s ambition to then sail around the world single-handed and non-stop is recounted as he shares how it feels to be in the teeth of fierce gales, a continuous storm and how a burst appendix and septicaemia ended one attempt. It’s a remarkable story told in plain seaman’s language and we hope to have it back on sale in The Shetland Times Bookshop before Christmas.
It’s out in paperback and was published and printed by us and is available to buy in our Shetland Times retail bookshop or online at www.shetlandtimes.co.uk/shop
