Overview

This classic sea story recounts Frank Dye's intrepid voyages
in his open 16ft Wayfarer dinghy to Iceland and Norway, which must rank
among the most hazardous sea adventures of our time.




Encountering the whole gamut of weather, such is Frank Dye's
seamanship that he and his crew survived gales up to Force 9, capsizing
and a broken mast, finally arriving safely to a Scandinavian welcome.
It is a hair raising unforgettable narrative in which we glimpse Frank's gifted boat-handling skills and his instinct for survival.
