Voyage of the Suzy Wong

by Steve Jackson , George Todd, Paul Cardoza and Walter Banks

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
FOUR GUYS, A DOG, AND A BOAT… ... and 26,000 miles of high seas between Hong Kong and Miami. THE YEAR WAS 1960. William Holden was the latest cinema heartthrob and his movie “The World of Suzie Wong” was all the rage. It was also the year four young men hatched a plan to sail halfway around the world. Never mind that they weren’t sailors or that one of them couldn’t swim. These four young men jumped at the chance to prove something to the world and to themselves. Armed with not much more than a forty-one-foot Sparkman & Stephens wooden sailboat, a Chinese Chow puppy, and all the gumption needed to survive dysentery, monsoons, and equipment failures, Steve, Walter, George, and Paul christened their newly-built vessel the Suzy Wong and set sail for the adventure of a lifetime. “Voyage of the Suzy Wong” is the true story of four young men who relied on the kindness of strangers, their own resourcefulness, and just plain luck to survive a world-embracing journey and live their dream.

About the author
STEVE JACKSON was the youngest crew member on the Suzy Wong. He brought a robust willingness to work hard. He was a jack-of-all-trades kind of guy and busied himself with any task needing to be done, both during the construction of the boat and when the adventure was underway. He was able to master the art of sailing and keep the sails and rigging in good working order. Steve had a yen for adventure. Without hesitation, he jumped at George’s idea for the voyage at its conception and pressed forward to make the adventure come to life.
