Are you warm, safe and dry?

Good - because the ocean can be a dangerous place and never more so than when the barometric pressure plummets and huge waves start to rise up from the deep. These five short stories - chilling, funny and scary in turns - will show you just how ugly and dangerous the sea can become. Make sure you are wrapped up warm and safe when you read this book, because the raw power of storms comes roaring to life in these terrifying tales:

In 1959, the Smeeton’s tried to round Cape Horn in a tiny wooden sailboat - big mistake. And they made it twice.

The 1979 Fastnet Race - the greatest tragedy ever to hit the sailing community.

In 1993, Cam Lewis tried to fly past Cape Horn in the quickest sailboat on the planet - instead, he was humbled into a battle for survival.

In 2001, Michel Desjoyeaux would have lost the Vendee Globe to Ellen MacArthur, if it wasn't for this one inspired 'MacGyver' moment.

Discover how the scientists came to accept they were wrong about rogue waves.

'I stumbled upon this collection of short stories quite by chance and discovered a string of seductive gems that I simply couldn't put down.' Reader.

Reviews for Mark Chisnell’s other Non-fiction:

‘There are many accounts of man against the sea, and man against man at sea, but seldom has there been such a panoramic portrayal of life at its cramped, frenetic and frightening worst as this examination of the latest winning Whitbread Round the World Race campaign.’
Stuart Alexander, Independent, ‘Sports Book of the Week’.

‘What it does brilliantly is get under the skin of what it is like to live and breathe a Whitbread Race.’
Tim Jeffery, The Daily Telegraph.

‘It’s the best book yet on this race. Great writing...’
Yachts and Yachting.
