review La Longue Route

Bernard Moitessier Á 8 review La Longue Route characters Í 8 Es of Good Hope Leeuwin and the Horn For seven months the veteran seafarer battled storms doldrums gear failures knock downs as well as overwhelming fatigue and loneliness. I wanted to like this but ultimately it wasn t for me The first half was a pretty standard sea tale consisting of weather updates sea conditions etc your basic log entry stuff peppered in over a lot of talk about the freedom of the sea and the sort of vague spirituality that engenders Not bad There were a few choice uotes and moments of rumination But the second half really went off the hippy dippy deep end There was a lot of talk about the Monster which as best as I can figure is the personification of humanity s avarice There s a fine line between working with technology say embracing a boat designed to harness the wind for the express purpose of allowing a yachtsman to circumnavigate the globe single handedly and decrying technology s ability to divorce mankind from nature Moitessier chooses instead to approach the subject in blunt terms At one point he goes on this long rant at least I think he was talking about himself I wasn t paying too much attention by then about how he s going to donate all the proceeds from the book to the Pope so the Pope can use it to safeguard the Earth from this Monster I pretty much gave up reading at that point but since I was close to the end I figured why not hate read this to the endIf you re looking for warmed over hippie philosophy with a salty flavor this is for you If not avoid it like so many shoals for a deep keeled boatIf you liked this make sure to follow me on Goodreads for reviews

Funny that I had not read this book previously My brother asked me to read something at his wedding that was nautical and talked about life this was his first thought for inspirationMoitessier conveys his love for the sea and sailing Central to the book is what it means to be a creature living on this planet This is the story of a solitary voyage racing around the planet in a small boat The other competitors are nearly absent What is present is the sea the boat Moitessier and his thoughts and memoriesThe author talks to us about the experience of being alone out on the water and how it causes him to reflect on his relationships with other people and with society He claims space for the vagabond who lives outside of the monster that society has becomePerfect book for me I m shopping for boats
