'So here are the dramatic highlights of a quarter century in three boats, Egregious, a 37-foot cutter; Chidiock Tichborne, an 18-foot open undecked yawl; and Resurgam, a 36-foot sloop. In these boats, I made more than three circumnavigations, twice alone, twice setting world records, twice via Cape Horn, which I was the first American to round alone.'
The extraordinary dramas presented by world-class sailor and writer Webb Chiles in his new book A Single Wave include battling Force 12 winds off Cape Horn, capsizing in a cyclone in the Tasman Sea and also in a storm in the Southern Ocean, drifting for two weeks and 300 miles in the South Pacific after a swamping west of Fiji, swimming for 26 hours and 130 miles in the Gulf Stream after sinking off the coast of Florida, and many other awesome trials of endurance in exotic climes - from South Africa and Bali to Tahiti and the Red Sea.
These engrossing accounts reveal a man relentlessy driven to discover his limits and then push beyond them. His inspiring, often poignant story is one that no reader will soon forget.
