Sir Francis Chichester, adventurer, entrepreneur, aviation expert and record breaking sailor, is probably best known as the first man to sail solo around the world, in 1966-67. In this captivating memoir, first published in 1930, he tells of another solo journey taken around the world nearly four decades earlier, by air in a De Haviland Gypsy Moth.

In Solo to Sydney he recounts the story of how he set out from Brooklands Surrey in November 1929 with the aim of breaking Bert Hinkler's fifteen and a half day solo flight record to Australia. Filled with details of the countries he visits, the characters he meets and his hours in the plane, along with detours, scrapes and near misses along the way. Told with wonderful warmth and humour Sir Chichester brings to life his exciting account of aviation history.
