9780246125095: Survive the Savage Sea

In June 1972, the 43-foor schooner Lucette was attacked by killer whales and sank in 60 seconds. What happened next is almost incredible. In an inflatable rubber raft, with a 9 foot fiberglass dinghy to tow it, Dougal Robertson and his family were miles from any shipping lanes. They had emergency rations for only three days and no maps, compass, or instruments of any kind. After their raft sank under them, they crammed themselves into their tiny dinghy.

For 37 days—using every technique of survival—they battled against 20-foot waves, marauding sharks, thirst, starvation, and exhaustion, adrift in the vast reaches of the Pacific before their ordeal was ended by a Japanese fishing boat. The Robertsons' strong determination shines through the pages of this extraordinary book which describes movingly their daily hopes and fears, crises and triumphs, tensions and heartbreaks.

From the Back Cover:

"For stark excitement, marine natural history, practical lessons, and human love and stresses, few records, if any, of hazard and survival have ever bettered it." --Washington Post

"[The Robertsons] survived and their tale is a triumph of human resource and determination against terrible odds." --Cruising World

"Unique, fascinating, magnificent!" --Samuel Eliot Morison

About the Author:

Dougal Robertson was born in Scotland in 1924 and spent the war in the Merchant Marine. He and his wife Lyn lived on a farm in England for a number of years before deciding to go on a circumnavigation with their children. They now live in France.
