Synopsis: Record-setting races, voyages of exploration, epic battles with the weather and shipwreck survivals are just some of the tales told in "Voices from the Sea". Historical feats such as Robin Knox-Johnston's record for the fastest non-stop circumnavigation of the globe and the legendary Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic mission range alongside modern achievements such as those of French adventurer Raphaela le Gouvello, who traversed the Indian Ocean solo in 2006 and stories from some of the world's most gruelling challenges - the Fastnet, Sydney-Hobart and Vendee races. This beautiful tribute to some of the world's most stunning and savage seas, sailors and explorers provides accounts of some of the greatest feats of human endurance, fascinating tales and intriguing facts about some of Earth's most interesting and unpredictable waters, enabling you to experience the majesty and grandeur of the seas and the terrifying challenges they faced.

About the Author: Sailing has always been part of Nic Compton's life, having grown up on boats in the Mediterranean. After working in Greece, he bought a 9.75m (32 ft) William Atkins double-ender which he sailed back to the UK in order to complete a degree in English with American & Commonwealth Arts in 1984. He was the deputy editor and then Editor of Classic Boat from 1996-2000, and since then, has traveled the world as a sailing writer. He was the editor of the Official Book of the America's Cup Jubilee (Notre Voie, 2002) and has written three books: Sailing Solo (Mitchell Beazley, 2003), Sailboats (Salamander 2003) and The Great Classic Yacht Revival (Mitchell Beazley 2004). He also writes for Yachting Monthly, Boat International and Motorboats and Yachting and speaks French and Greek. He lives in Lewes, East Sussex where he has a boat and sails regularly.
