"In all, beautifully written and wonderfully inspiring."--The Wall Street Journal A poignant account that will inspire you to tackle challenging sailing endeavors as well as squarely face life's emotional challenges, finding the courage to live a fully engaged, authentic life
Three years after his wife's death, Peter Bourke bought a boat--even though he had never learned to sail. In 2009, Peter entered the Oldest Singlehanded Trans-Atlantic Race at age 58. Sea Trials is the account of those 40 days of racing on his 44-foot sailboat Rubicon. Told with grace, insight, and humility, the book bares both the boredom and adventure of racing solo and provides insights to the value of going to sea.
