"Miles Smeeton and his wife Beryl sailed their 46-ft Bermuda ketch, Tzu Hang, in the wild seas of Cape Horn, following the tracks of the old sailing clippers through the world's most notorious waters. Twice they met disaster, being pitch poled the first time and rolled over the second, surviving in both cases under juryrig by sheer and awe-inspiring seamanship. This is as exciting as any stor y of survival against all odds can be, but it is also a thoughtful book with lessons for other sailors. In a splendid tribute to the Smeetons in his Foreword, Nevil Shute writes: 'It has been left to Miles Smeeton in this book to tell us in clear and simple language just where the limits of safety lie'" -from the dustjacket.
