Pressure Falling – Short Stories of Stormy Seas by Mark Chisnell

PF

Are you warm, safe and dry?

Good – because the ocean can be a dangerous place and never more so than when the barometric pressure plummets and huge waves start to rise up from the deep.

These five short stories – chilling, funny and scary in turns – will show you just how ugly and dangerous the sea can become. Make sure you are wrapped up warm and safe when you read this book, because the raw power of storms comes roaring to life in these terrifying tales:

  • In 1959, the Smeeton’s tried to round Cape Horn in a tiny wooden sailboat – big mistake. And they made it twice.
  • The 1979 Fastnet Race – the greatest tragedy ever to hit the sailing community.
  • In 1993, Cam Lewis tried to fly past Cape Horn in the quickest sailboat on the planet – instead, he was humbled into a battle for survival.
  • In 2001, Michel Desjoyeaux would have lost the Vendee Globe to Ellen MacArthur, if it wasn’t for this one inspired ‘MacGyver’ moment.
  • Discover how the scientists came to accept they were wrong about rogue waves
