A Speck on the Sea

    TEMA: Viajes, Aventuras, Expediciones [Ver más libros del tema]



    RESUMEN DEL LIBRO:
    In A Speck on the Sea, William Longyard reaches back through five centuries to gather a collection of sea adventures in which the smallest, unlikeliest craft, and the daring individuals aboard them, completed extraordinary voyages against odds. From canoes and small sailboats to a pair of strap - to - your - feet pontoons, the watercraft in these true stories make a nearly as varied a collection as the mariners who piloted them. The intrepid seafarers and their feats of seamanship include: Ed Gillet's kite - powered transpacific kayak voyage, Gladys Gradely's 1902 quest to become the first women to solo the Atlantic, Ben Lecomte's swim across an ocean for love, Hugo Vihlen's 1968 ocean cruising in the 6 - foot sailboat April Fool, Peter Bird's tragic attempt to row across the Pacific. Whether driven by desperation, adventure, or a desire for fame and fortune, the risktakers in these extraordinary stories show what vast ocean can be crossed in tiny contrivances by those who dare.

    UNA MANCHA EN EL OCEANO: VIAJES EPICOS EN LAS EMBARCACIONES MAS IMPROBABLES:
    Con este libro, William H. Longyard recorre cinco siglos, recogiendo una colección de aventuras en el mar, en pequeñas e increíbles embarcaciones, viajes extraordinarios realizados contra grandes dificultades. Desde canoas a pequeños veleros. Estas historias verdaderas, constituye una variada coleccción de marinos que los pilotaron. Los intrépidos marinos y sus proezas incluye: El viaje trasnspacífico de Ed Gillet en kayak, Gladys Gradely, que en 1902 quiso convertirse en la primera navegante del mundo en navegar en solitario por el Atlántico, la proeza de Ben Lacomte, que nadó en el océano por amor, el cruce del océano en un velero de 6 pies, el April Fool por Hugo Vihlen, y, entre otros, el trágico intento de Peter Bird de cruzar el Pacífico.
