Dag Pike first went to sea aged 16 on tramp ships and experienced his first shipwreck two years later. He became the youngest Trinity House lighthouse tender captain aged 29. He went to become an Inspector of Lifeboats responsible for some 50 RNLI stations.
He has participated in six Atlantic record attempts and, as a member of the Italian Destriero project, made the fastest crossing averaging over 53 knots.
Dag has written over 40 books and contributes regularly to marine magazines worldwide. Having witnessed the Atlantic in all its moods and been shipwrecked twice, he is uniquely qualified to write this book.
