9781408112007: Sunk Without Trace: 30 dramatic accounts of yachts lost at sea

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
