Veteran Tilman hand (of two Greenland voyages) Bob Comlay is our editorial researcher on the HWT Collected Edition project by Lodestar and Vertebrate Publishing, and he has a new blog of his own we can heartily recommend. His latest post there relates to the December Yachting Monthly article by him, over four pages, which describes HWT through others’ eyes and experiences. The ’34 years’ refers to (in Bob’s words) ‘the infamous 1982 editorial piece which sparked a lot of myths, bad feeling and one of the biggest irate mailbags that Yachting Monthly had ever received’. Not that Tilman is beyond criticism—as can be found in some of the contributions to our new edition of his books.
