    "I knew I had a strong and seaworthy boat, but after all, she was only 11 feet 10 inches long. How would she react to big waves, Storms, or even cyclones? Would she ever capsize? and would I be able to put up with the continuous pounding and rolling, or would I end up as crazy as people thought I was? The best way to find out was to try."Alone aboard Acrohc, the tiny yacht he designed and built, Serge Testa sailed around the world and into the Guinness Book of Records. Exotic landfalls, cyclones, encounters with whales, and a nearly fatal fire at sea make this a gripping story. Told with understatement and humor, this account of a unique voyage of discovery and endurance appeals to the adventurer in all of us."Serge Testa's 500 Days is a lively, warm and well written account of a seamanlike circumnavigation."-Cruising World"Why would anyone sail around the world in a 12 ft. boat? Meet Serge Testa, a charming and resourceful adventurer. Read this book and you, too may find yourself planning the adventure of a lifetime."-Sail
