Présentation de l'éditeur

From the cover of the original hard cover edition: "I was born for this moment and for all the days ahead." Thus begins the intensely personal account of 33 year old Webb Chiles' formidable voyage around the world by way of Cape Horn; the legendary fulfillment of a dream conceived in childhood. Alone at sea for 310 days on his 37-foot cutter EGREGIOUS, he covered 38,000 miles in five difficult passages. He became the first American to round Cape Horn alone, complete one of the longest solo passages of all time, and make the fastest solo circumnavigation ever in a monohull.

He writes at the outset: 'I will know defeat, despair, fear, beauty, serenity and peace. I will be tested far beyond anything I have ever imagined.' And tested he was--by storms, three capsizes, hurricane force winds, cyclones, week-long calms, sleet, snow, frostbite. He endured to experience exhilaration and accomplishment in solitude , and the peace of being in supreme harmony with the sea-world around him."

STORM PASSAGE is about the first of legendary writer/sailor Webb Chiles' now five circumnavigations, all made without sponsorship, shore teams, PR agents, or any means of calling for help. Many talk loosely about living on the edge. Webb Chiles has for decades.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 How stupid 2 décembre 2011

A guy driven from his desire to navigate around the world with a fast mono hull....ends in chaos. He could not understand that proper preparation for such a long tour is a must. Even when he had to repair his yacht in Tahiti, he had not the patience to make the repairing proper, so he failed again. This book is a must for everybody to read, who likes to navigate around the world. Everybody can learn from his mistakes.

Webb's writing is beautiful and his sailing experience is amazing, relevant, and important. He offers the PDF free on his website and reading this will simply want to wish for more of his work. Webb is a philosopher and writer first. As a tinkerer and fixer, I was initially frustrated with his lack of mechanical abilities...just push through that and accept him for what he is.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I really wanted to like this one 25 janvier 2012
Par Scott C - Publié sur

When the story centers on the actual voyage itself and its many challenges, it essentially works. The main problem I had with "Storm Passage" was the fact that the writer, "Webb", comes off as a self-absorbed, pompous windbag. He wines about EVERYTHING. And alternates in personality between "victim", "worldly and cultured "gentleman" and "narcissistic bore bursting with boneheaded pride". He will also inexplicably throw in descriptions about himself out of nowhere. -At one point mentioning his "full lips" and his "cleft chin" (which he says is his best feature). Really? Hmm. So, any interest in the story of the voyage (s) is literally sucked dry by the fact that you have to hang out with this egotistical and largely miserable person. It's too bad really, because his voyage and his achievements are extraordinary. Who knows, maybe in the years since this account he grew up a little bit.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Ok. For a daily log but....not an interesting read. 9 avril 2012
Par Craig Bowman - Publié sur

I have read tons of sailing books and I found this author spent far too much time complaining about having to bail his constantly leaking boat when he passes dozens, if not hundreds, of ports along the way that he could have stopped at to get it fixed. If you chose not to fix something then stop complaining about it page after page. Since he seemed bent on not stopping, the book lacked interesting stories of people and places he visited along the way and we were stuck listening to a guy give a daily log of the weather, his thoughts and complaints of how hard his trip was and how poorly built his boat was. It was just interesting enough for me to finish reading it, but I was glad when it was finally over. Others seemed to give it good reviews but it just wasn't my type of book.

This book is one of the best written sailing non-fiction I have found. It is well-written, exciting, and is a crazy sailing story to boot. I would have stopped long before he did!
