This classic sea story recounts Frank Dye's intrepid voyages in his open 16ft Wayfarer dinghy to Iceland and Norway, which must rank among the most hazardous sea adventures of our time. Encountering the whole gamut of weather, such is Frank Dye's seamanship that he and his crew survived gales up to Force 9, capsizing and a broken mast, finally arriving safely to a Scandinavian welcome. It is a hair raising unforgettable narrative in which we glimpse Frank's gifted boat-handling skills and his instinct for survival. 'Without doubt Frank Dye is one of this century's greatest small boat seamen.' Yachting Monthly 'Any reader who has been far offshore in bad weather will marvel at the sheer temerity of a man who would attempt Iceland and Norway in such a craft.' Yachting Monthly 'Frank and Margaret Dye have become dinghy sailing legends in their own time.' Yachts & Yachting
