Ein Klassiker über ein zeitlos spannendes Abenteurerschicksal Im Juli 1969 wird mitten im Atlantik eine Jacht entdeckt – die Segel sind gesetzt, aber der Trimaran ist leer. Nur die Log- und Tagebücher befinden sich noch an Bord und offenbaren ein dunkles Geheimnis. Ihr Verfasser Donald Crowhurst war acht Monate zuvor aufgebrochen, um im Wettstreit mit namhaften Seglern wie Robin Knox-Johnston und Bernard Moitessier als schnellster Solosegler nonstop die Welt zu umrunden. Was damals kaum jemand wusste: Crowhurst verfügte weder über Hochseeerfahrung noch über ein seetaugliches Boot. Doch warum war der Unternehmer und Familienvater dennoch bei dem Rennen, das die Sunday Times mit einem Preisgeld von 5000 Pfund ausgelost hatte, angetreten? Und was ist an Bord geschehen, dass er für immer verschollen blieb? Einfühlsam arbeiten die Autoren anhand der letzten Aufzeichnungen die Vorgeschichte und sonderbaren Abläufe auf See auf. Sie berichten von menschlichem Streben und Versagen. Erzählen eine Geschichte über Heldentum, in der kein Held vorkommt. Und zeichnen das Porträt eines bemerkenswerten Mannes, der am Ende keinen Ausweg mehr sah. »Crowhursts Geschichte ist dramatischer als alle anderen, geheimnisvoller und dunkler als ›All is lost‹.« Frankfurter Allgemeine Magazin »Eine der außergewöhnlichsten Seefahrtgeschichten, die je veröffnetlicht wurde.« The Washington Post »Ein Meisterstück.« The New Yorker »Eines der packendsten Lesestücke über das Segeln überhaupt.« FAZ

This book provides over 500 exercises with answers covering all aspects of small-craft navigation. These are practical problems that all navigators should know how to solve. Topics include: Piloting, Chart reading and plotting, Voyage planning, Dead reckoning, Compass use, Waypoint selection, Special publications, Rules of the road, Route design, Lights and buoys, Tides and currents, Electronic fixes, Depth sounding navigation The level of the exercises is comparable to that used in the USCG 100-Ton masters exam, which in turn is about the same used in the navigation certification programs of US Sailing, ASA, CYA and RYA. These practice problems are, however, designed to be practical and instructive, not just training exercises for certification exams. This Workbook is used by several navigation schools around the country. Selections are provided from each of these special publications along with exercises to insure their full use is mastered: NOAA Tide Tables, NOAA Current Tables, US Coast Pilot, USCG Light List, USCG Notices to Mariners, NOAA Chart Catalog The exercises that require a chart use nautical training chart No. 18465 Tr, available in print at reduced price from NOAA chart dealers and other outlets listed in the Appendix. You can also work the chart problems with an electronic chart (Raster Navigation Chart, RNC) number 18465 Tr. This custom echart is available as a download from www.starpath.com/18465tr. The echart can be viewed by any of several free echart viewer programs. Sources for free echart viewers and guidelines for their use are included in the Appendix. You can also use any full echart navigation program of your choice. We encourage navigators to solve the chart problems with both traditional paper plotting as well as electronically, using route tools, electronic bearing lines, and range rings.
