By the same author as the bestselling Total Loss,
this is a new collection of terrifying and compelling accounts of
yachts lost at sea. The seven deadly causes of loss continue to take
their toll, and Paul Gelder has compiled first-hand accounts of
shipwreck and sinking caused by Collision, Gear Failure, Stress of
Weather, Faulty Navigation, Fire, Crew Failure and Exhaustion.


The moving, emotionally charged descriptions of shipwrecked sailors
abandoning their yachts at sea will have you on the edge of your seat.
But these accounts are more than just gripping tales of disaster - they
carry valuable lessons which the survivors have been able to pass on to
all who go to sea for pleasure.



Praise for Total Loss:



'The tales provide gripping if sometimes unsettling reading and many valuable lessons.' - Cruising World



'Sure, you can learn from your own mistakes, but wouldn't you rather learn from theirs?' - Sailing

About the Author:

Paul Gelder is editor of Yachting Monthly magazine, and is the author of
several books, including The Loneliest Race, and has edited others, such as
the bestselling Total Loss. He has sailed a wide variety of yachts,
from ocean racers to family cruising yachts to the famous Gypsy Moth
IV; he currently sails a Telstar trimaran.

Review:

'The moving, emotionally charged descriptions of shipwrecked sailors abandoning their yachts at sea will have you on the edge of your seat. But these accounts are more than just gripping tales of disaster - they carry valuable lessons, which the survivors have been able to pass on to all who go to sea for pleasure.' All at Sea (April 2010) 'inspirational tales of human survival' Yachting Monthly (2010) '...these are accounts of superb seamanship that prevented any loss of life...read this book.' The Little Ship Club (Winter 2010) 'offers up lots of experience for skippers to prepare for a long voyage at sea' Ontario Sailor Magazine (Aug/Sept 2010) 'While these accounts are not of the travails of working vessels, they are instructive nevertheless...The similarities between yachts and work boats make it worth reading this interesting little book.' Ausmarine (March 2011)
