Miles wants us to be able to feel what it's like off Cape Horn, but as a sailor, not a tourist or a thrill seeker . It is the best of arm chair books that lets you follow carefully all his tacks and sail changes because he supplies the details.

Miles wants us to be able to feel what it's like off Cape Horn, but as a sailor, not a tourist or a thrill seeker, least of all a foolhardy stunt. Less about the ordeal and more about close calls, stupid foulups, navigational challenges, and ingredients of decision making.

This timeless classic is an exciting true story of survival against all odds. I felt a great lurch and heel, and a thunder of sound filled my ears. I was conscious, in a terrified moment, of being driven into the front and side of my bunk with tremendous force. At the same time there was a tearing cracking sound, as if Tzu Hang was being ripped apart, and water burst solidly, raging into the cabin. There was darkness, black boards, and I fought wildly to get out, thinking Tzu Hang had already gone.
