About the Author

Born in England in 1906, Miles Smeeton joined the army and fought in World War II before setting sail on the Bermudan ketch `Tzu Hang' with his wife in 1956. During his lifetime Miles Smeeton wrote nine books, and together with his wife founded the Cochrane Ecological Institute in 1972 and received numerous awards for their lifetime sailing achievements. He died in 1988.


`They are ... the first people ever to return alive to tell the story of a boat being somersaulted ... And they certainly make fascinating company for a reader with his eyes on the heights of human endeavour.' Sunday Times

`Unique among books of maritime adventure.' New York Times Book Review

`Brigadier Smeeton's saga is the very essence of authenticity. Its message is clear and simple: Beware the sea in anger, for no small boat can conquer it, however expertly sailed.' New York Times Book Review

It is the struggle of these three indomitable sailors for survival and their extraordinary resource ... that makes their taut journal unique among books of maritime adventure ... Tzu Hang and her crew add up not only to survival but to a tale full of sound and fury told by an intrepid but eminently sane survivor.' TLS

`Well and forthrightly written ... full of real adventure and suspense ... One reading is not enough.' Library Journal
