Life is stranger than fiction! If you love sailing & being out on the water there are some incredible true stories in this audio book so dramatically read, really kept me gripped. Some chilling 'Dead Calm' moments, I even had to re-wind several times to hear the details again. I loved the true story about the fight between a giant squid & a whale so graphic & visual. It's a wonderful selection of tales from old clipper ships, modern day racing yachts & lone eccentrics who took to the sea with no experience. I highly recommend it found it inspiring & moving. I might even build a ship & set sail soon across the oceans soon!
