    • Un bellissimo libro di mare : il racconto dei piccoli e grandi viaggi compiuti da Moitessier nei Mari del Sud con le sue prime barche. Vi si racconta la scoperta della vocazione di questo unico navigatore e scrittore, che e’ riuscito a conciliare due personalita’ apparentemente diversissime: quella occidentale ricevuta in eredità dai suoi genitori francesi e quella orientale formatasi durante la giovinezza trascorsa in Vietnam.
