Zusammenfassung

After their 43-foot schooner was stove in by a pod of killer whales, the Robertson family spent 37 days adrift in the Pacific. With no maps, compass, or navigational instruments, and rations for only three days, they used every survival technique they could as they battled 20-foot waves, marauding sharks, thirst, starvation, and exhaustion.

Survive the Savage Sea Zusammenfassung

Survive the Savage Sea Dougal Robertson

In June 1972, the 43-foor schooner Lucette was attacked by killer whales and sank in 60 seconds. What happened next is almost incredible. In an inflatable rubber raft, with a 9 foot fiberglass dinghy to tow it, Dougal Robertson and his family were miles from any shipping lanes. They had emergency rations for only three days and no maps, compass, or instruments of any kind. After their raft sank under them, they crammed themselves into their tiny dinghy. For 37 days-using every technique of survival-they battled against 20-foot waves, marauding sharks, thirst, starvation, and exhaustion, adrift in the vast reaches of the Pacific before their ordeal was ended by a Japanese fishing boat. The Robertsons' strong determination shines through the pages of this extraordinary book which describes movingly their daily hopes and fears, crises and triumphs, tensions and heartbreaks.

Survive the Savage Sea Bewertungen

...[a] well-written account....an unexpectedly personal view of a man's physical and a woman's emotional courage that, when bonded, produced the strength to survive. * Sailing *
For stark excitement, marine natural history, practical lessons, and human love and stresses, few records, if any, of hazard and survival have ever bettered it. * The Instrumentalist *
[The Robertsons] survived and their tale is a triumph of human resource and determination against terrible odds. * Cruising World *
What a brave man, what an eloquent writer! In case of shipwreck I would send for Dougal Robertson or, in absence of him, reread his book in order to find out what on earth to do next. -- Nicholas Monsarrat
