Detailed Product Description
UK, Victor Gollancz, 1986, 1st edition. 172 pp, 22 b/w photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

In 1977 Simon Richardson (age 24) and Major Bill Tilman (age 79) set off from Southampton on a voyage to Smith Island, one of the South Shetlands, in the Antarctic, sailing in the small boat En Avant with Simon skippering and 5 further crew - they never reached their next landfall in the Falkland Islands, and they never returned. A real 
mystery of the sea. 

Composed of a biography of her son Simon by Dorothy Richardson, and "A voyage in Baroque with H W Tilman in 1973," by Simon Richardson, and with appendices where experts speculate on the fate of the En Avant and its crew.
