No Return Ticket - Leg One - Outward Bound - California to Australia (Vol.1)
Author: Rowland S.
Publisher: Skip Rowland Enterprises
Pages count: 251
Description: Captain Skip Rowland shares his gripping true story of the theft and subsequent torching of his beloved sailboat on a desolate Mexican shore. After personally catching the thieves he later escapes the captivating allure of California’s glitzy lifestyle to sail his new 43 foot Endymion through the jaw dropping beauty of the South Pacific to Australia. This however is no ordinary voyage. Endymion is knocked down in the mid Pacific, nearly sliced in half by a vagabond freighter, grounded on a coral reef and survives the most severe weather in over 100 years crossing the Tasman sea. Courage, love, faith, bravado, and endurance are all in this openly honest memoir about the value—and cost—of resurrecting old dreams and living them out despite the risks. Rowland’s authentic voice will have you believing you are on deck as romance of the seas meets the reality of the journey.
