Only one will complete the race; seven will be forced to withdraw, and one will simply disappear.Roth writes with grace, humor, and poetic insight about the vastness and beauty of the ocean.Library JournalBy all means read all of Hal Roth you can find.Practical SailorRoths books about his life at sea, including Two on a Big Ocean and Two Against Cape Horn, are universally listed among the most influential sailing books ever published.SpinSheetRoth can charm you out of your armchair.Kirkus
