Editorial Reviews

Sailing
Rough Passage is the story of one man, Royal Navy Commander Robert Graham, his boat, a seven ton, 30ft cutter named EMANUEL, and their epic return transatlantic crossing.
The year was 1934, and Commander Graham s single-handed route took him from Falmouth to Labrador, then on to Bermuda for the Winter, before returning to England via the Azores. All this was without the advantage of the electronic navigation systems of today, or any of the many modern high-tech sailing aids. Throw in the roughest of passages at times, and his own health fears, and you have quite a tale.
Classic Boat
The writing by Robert Graham is straightforward, disarmingly so, and practical, and this remains a great book for anyone planning such a cruise (by the northern route to Labrador)...[and] his overcoming of adversity inspires. It's a sanguine account of some very difficult offshore sailing.
