Only half way through this book, but find it very entertaining and addictive. Very interesting sea stories, some true and some fictitious.

I have very much enjoyed reading the majority of the stories in this book, with the exceptions of the truly historical ones, which I found did not interest me to the same extent. That said, I have enjoyed the book a lot, and would recommend it to others interested in true sailing stories.

If you like reading sailing stories, this is a good book for you. Especially liked the Shackleton story - very well written. Took the book on holiday and it was an excellent read
