Tami Oldham and her fianc¬e Richard Sharp set sail from Tahiti, both excellent sailors, with a bright future ahead of them. Twenty days into their journey, they ran into a monumental hurricane, in which Richard was blown overboard. With the masts gone, the engine shot, and Richard dead, Tami overcame tremendous odds to navigate herself to safety. It took her 41 days. This is her story.

About the Author:

Tami Oldham Ashcraft, who speaks fluently about her experiences, continues to be an avid sailor and is a 100-ton licensed captain with over 50,000 offshore miles. She lives in Friday Harbor, Washington.

From AudioFile:

Expert sailor Tami Oldham Ashcraft describes how love united her with British seafarer Richard Sharp. After their engagement, the couple sets off from Tahiti to San Diego to deliver a magnificent sailboat for its owners. After 20 days at sea, somewhere near Central America, a hurricane encircles them. The boat capsizes, and Richard is lost at sea. Although a novice narrator, Ashcraft's inner strength is revealed as she spellbindingly relives those 42 excruciating days navigating the sea-ravaged sailboat while desperately trying to maintain her sanity.
