My Old Man and the Sea: A Father and Son Sail Around Cape Horn is a true story about a father and son who refit a 30 foot sailboat and sail around the the southern tip of South America the Cape Horn. The Cape is a notorious ship wrecker and is plagued by high waves and poor weather.
I loved this book. It is not only an adventure story, it is the story of a father and son and their relationship and their growth. The almost a year trip takes them to through the Panama Canal, the Galapagos Islands, The Easter Islands, the Falklands and then on home.
If you love to sail, you like adventure, you love to travel, this is the perfect read and or gift. Easy reading and goes fast, you will laugh and you will cry at the end. It is great story.
