Racundra's First Cruise

The Racundra is a 30 ft. ketch specially built for cruising in the Baltic, & the "Racundra's first cruise" is the record of her maiden voyage penned by her owner & master, Mr. Arthur Ransome. It was a five weeks' trip from Riga to Helsingfors & back. The first point of call was the little, forgotten island of Run?, where life is still simple. Thence the Racundra sailed through the difficult Moon Sound to Reval, & so across the gulf to Helsingfors. Mr. Ransome has managed to get a true yachtsman's enthusiasm into his pages, & his readers will enjoy his vivid account of steering with a defective compass & his frank confession that he went to sleep at the tiller. He is no less at home on land, & his impressions of places are happily done.
