About the Author

'Blondie' Hasler was awarded the OBE for his services in Norway in 1940. He invented the modern yacht wind vane self-steering gear; founded the Single-handed Transatlantic Race in 1960 (in which he finished second in his junk-rigged Jester), and the Round Britain Race and did a great deal of developmental work on the Chinese junk rig for yachts. He died in 1987. Major Jock McLeod joined Hasler as a partner in 1963. He currently sails Ron Glas, his 47-foot junk rigged schooner and has made six Atlantic crossings in her, two of them in single-handed races.
