"Avast, me hearties, let us splice the mainbrace, raise our glasses high and shout hurrah for the everlasting majesty and glory of the tall ships."

Robert D. Easton is the author of “Sailing Around the World in 300 Days: The Last World Cruise of the Yankee Trader.” The travelogue tells the story of the fun, colorful voyage around the world by the author and approximately 75 other passengers, plus about 20 crew members abroad the ship Yankee Trader in 1979. The largely island-hopping voyage covered about 31,000 nautical miles and took Easton and his fellow travelers to 61 ports across the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian oceans as well as the Caribbean Sea. The Yankee Trader, on its last trip, crossed the Equator four times, the International Date Line once, and the Greenwich Meridian once.
“Insects, reptiles, (all non-poisonous), plants, trees, and also experience cultural diversity when meeting the Malagasy people. Join our family as we participate in this adventure of a lifetime”, explains the author.
“Sailing Around the World in 300 Days” is the author’s fourth book—and is a milestone of sorts. “This was my first experience writing a book electronically,” said Easton in his testimonial for Outskirts Press, “since I had no cell phone or computer knowledge.”
“So, I bought a cell phone and with the patient help of my Author Rep and some hard working and patient local librarians in Sacramento, we were finally able to complete the book in late August. My book is an attempt to recapture some of the places and names from bygone days. It will be an enjoyable read for everyone who likes ships, oceans and travel.”
Travel junkies will truly appreciate the author’s accounts of his 300-day circumnavigation of the globe abroad the Yankee Trader. The travelogue extols the joys of world travel.
