Book Review: The Ocean Waits, by Webb Chiles

The Ocean Waits

I had to know how Webb Chiles’ open boat circumnavigation ended… and so I followed him from the New Hebrides where he recovered his boat, all the way to Saudi Arabia where he was imprisoned and lost his boat again, only this time for good. And then again a year later, with a new identical boat departing from the Red Sea, crossing the Mediterranean and reaching the Canary Islands. Overall, his voyage is a true inspirational story and his feat unique in the history of small boat sailing. After reading many-many accounts of single-handed voyages, Webb’s books still remain among my favourites.
