The Long Way recounts the incredible story of Bernard Moitessier's participation in the first Golden Globe Race - a solo, non-stop circumnavigation rounding the three great Capes of Good Hope, Leeuwin, and the Horn.
Bernard Moitessier was born in 1925 in Indochina and much of his sailing knowledge was gained during time spent at sea with the fishermen of the Gulf of Siam. One of the greatest ocean voyagers, he became a legend in his time. He was also a gifted writer and wrote four books describing his seagoing adventures. He moved to France where he spent the last years of his life working on his memoirs, Tamata and the Alliance (Sheridan House, 1995), the story of an unusual man and an exciting life. Bernard Moitessier died in the summer of 1994.
