Down Denmark Straight - Book


A blog reader was kind enough to send us the following note ~

I found a book at my local library that I wanted to share: "Down Denmark Strait" by E. Newbold Smith, 1980. The author takes his Swan through the '76 Newport-Bermuda race and then north through Newfoundland to Iceland, Sweden, Spitsbergen, Greenland, Gulf of St Lawrence, and New York. The book includes a layout and profile of REINDEER, with S&S approval noted. It is a quick read and is entertaining from a pre-GPS sailor's point of view with several Cold War references.

ISBN 0-316-79958-0

Quickly looking on the Internet the book seems to be fairly readily available on the used book market. Thank you for sending this.
