Abstract:

Passage East is more than the exciting narrative of a small-boat race across the most varied of waters, the North Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and England. It describes the gradual accumulation of sea lore as men sailed in the ships of the past, and explains many of the concepts which divide the sailor's world from the landsman's. It is an almost hourly record of the crew of the yawl Caribbee, their hopes and fears, their moments of exultation and of exhaustion in cold fog and blazing sunshine, hard driving and maddening drifting. - Flap.
