A cruising guide for boaters covering the Northern Bahamas, from Grand Bahama and the Abacos south to Cat Island.

Cape Horn Birthday documents the extraordinary non-stop round-the-world journey of a lone sailor and his thirty-two-foot sloop. GPS did not exist when Peter Freeman set sail from Victoria, British Columbia, in 1984. Peter navigated the old-fashioned way, with a compass, a sextant, books of tables, and his wits. Along the way, he had to rebuild the self-steering rudder, repair torn sails, and fix broken gear.

Chasing the Long Rainbow chronicles the drama of the BOC Challenge for one man alone, the sea, and a race against time.
