When the elements are against you, there's no place to hide.

You're sailing along smoothly, the salt air in your lungs, the spray on your face, when suddenly the sea becomes an unfriendly host and you are at its mercy.

From the pages of Motor Boating & Sailing magazine comes an enthralling anthology of twenty-four true sea stories that will set your pulse racing. Collected for the first time are some of the acclaimed magazine's most riveting tales of danger and daring on the high seas, all told by the men and women who lived to recount their adventures.

"Heroes"-The Coast Guard embarks on a daring mission to rescue three sailors caught in the legendary gale that inspired The Perfect Storm.

"Staying Alive"-A pod of killer whales turns deadly and sinks a couple's sailboat, leaving them stranded on alife raft in the middle of the Pacific for sixty-six days.

"Fastnet Disaster"-Media mogul Ted Turner recalls the harrowing race that destroyed men and ships and nearly cost him his own life.

"Tania's Triumph"-Tania Aebi, a gutsy eighteen year old from New York, circles the globe on a sailboat built for one.

An edge-of-your-seat collection of triumph and tragedy, Against The Sea calls to the intrepid seafarer in all of us.
