Big adventures on the high seasa€”from one of the greatest seafaring writers of our age Hal Rotha€™s vivid, authentic tales of the sea have riveted readers around the world for forty years. Here, in one volume, are three of his classic sea stories, each one a white-knuckled, rail-down voyage into the unknown. A hard-working San Francisco husband and wife abandon their jobs, their security, and, some would say, their sanity to sail their 35-foot sloop to Japan and backa€”the long way! Over the next nineteen months, they discover exotic islands, fascinating people, and a whole new way of life. A few years later these intrepid voyagers decide to try their luck against Cape Horn, but they will need a lot more than luck to survive the vicious storms, violent seas, and perilous shores of the worlda€™s most dangerous stretch of water. Then nine courageous sailors accept a challenge to do what has never been done before: to race alone, in a small sailboat, around the worlda€”nonstop. Only one will complete the race; seven will be forced to withdraw, and one will simply disappear.If he were to counterfeit his entire voyage, he would need the creative abilities of a Tolstoy plus the navigational background of a Sir Francis Chichester. ... In each case he could arrange his progress to indicate that he was gaining on the leaders and finally had passed into the lead. ... His sponsor, Mr. Best, had the right to demand that Crowhurst buy back the yacht, which would mean bankruptcy.
