What is the implication of sailing? How should we view the ocean? This book records the story of Lin Jing and her husband Chris, a French native, sailing from Norway to Brazil with their boat “Friend of Ocean”. It is in fact the second navigation of this couple after their first 760-day trans-Atlantic trip in 2005. This time they opened up new routes, challenged high-latitude waters, and revisited Canary Islands, leading readers to appreciate the “joys and sorrows” of the vast ocean, and learn about the exotic lifestyle of islanders…The vivid narration and description make readers empathize with the author, as if they are so excited about the picturesque natural scenery and marvelous anecdotes.
