Stuart Woods had never owned more than a dinghy before setting out on one of the world's most demanding sea voyages, navigating single-handedly across the Atlantic. How, at the age of 37, did this self-proclaimed novice go from small ponds to the big sea?
Now with a new afterword that looks back at how one transatlantic race changed his life, Woods takes listeners on a spectacular journey not just of traveling across the world, but of being tried in fire, learning by accepting challenges, appreciating the beauty of the open water, and living to tell about it.

For the Hardened Sailor, Novice, and Dreamer Alike
One of the best narrators I've heard
One of the very best. Both the narrator, Steven Collins, and the author, Stuart Woods, provide huge entertainment and information value.
The account by one of the best single handed sailors, who nearly fell off his boat, and after getting back on deck, sat and broke down in tears at the realization of his near demise.
The early evolution of the author's sailing skills, especially racing children!
Smile, especially in the first fourth of the book.
I highly recommend this production.
