Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

Frank and John Livingston's exploits on their Kurrewa yachts were truly incredible. Frank the practical business man and John the 'ideas man', were a winning combination. They mixed with some of the most powerful and influential people of their day. They won line-honours in the Sydney-Hobart race four times, a record that stands today. They also participated in the Trans-Tasman race, breaking a long standing record.

A rash promise made at the height of a cyclone saw them sail across the Pacific Ocean to compete in the 1949 Los Angeles-Honolulu race. They also campaigned for the America's Cup in 1964. This is a story of their adventures, it is part of Australia's history. They were great Aussie larrikins. 233 x 153mm., pp. 226, black & white plates, index, bibliography, end notes. Trade paperback, pictorial card covers with 'flaps'. Contents, SIGNED by ROD MEYNINK ('Good Sailing Rod Meynink') no other inscriptions, light (small) stain last page; card covers, slightly 'rubbed' on corners and edges. NEAR FINE.
