    Bernard Moitessier was born in 1925 in Indochina and much of his sailing knowledge was gained during time spent at sea with the fishermen of the Gulf of Siam. One of the greatest ocean voyagers, he became a legend in his time. He was also a gifted writer and wrote four books describing his seagoing adventures. He moved to France where he spent the last years of his life working on his memoirs, Tamata and the Alliance (Sheridan House, 1995), the story of an unusual man and an exciting life. Bernard Moitessier died in the summer of 1994.
    Bernard Moitessier was in the lead and nearing the finish of the Golden Cup—a solo circumnavigation of the world—when he abandoned the race and set his course for a personal journey that would conclude three months later in Tahiti. Moitessier himself recounts the story of his personal quest in lyrical and though-provoking prose.
