Philip Houghton circumnavigated New Zealand in 1966-67 taking five months. He bought the only suitable vessel he could find, a Bermudan cutter forty foot in length, and renamed her Murihiku (the Maori name for the southern end of South Island). A friend was aghast at the idea of him changing the boat's name but quietened once it was pointed out to him that even the Endeavour had once had another name. This book is more a description of Houghton's voyage with references to Cook thrown in than the other way around. It is full of incidents that a yachtsman will understand only too well.
