Voyage of the Cormorant : A Memoir of the Changeable Sea (Reprint) (Paperback) (Christian Beamish)
about this item
Christian Beamish, a former editor at The Surfer’s Journal, envisioned a low-tech, self-reliant exploration for surf along the coast of North America, using primarily clothes and instruments available to his ancestors, and the 18-foot boat he would build by hand in his garage. How the vision met reality – and how the two came to shape each other – places The Voyage of the Cormorant in the great American tradition of tales of life at sea, and what it has to teach us.
