Ice Bird : The Classic Story of the First Single-Handed Voyage to Antarctica Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


David Lewis and his small yacht, Ice Bird, set sail from Sydney, Australia, on a search for high adventure.

The voyage, full of drama, emotion and pain, takes place in the least hospitable and most fascinating part of the earth, the Antarctic.

No one had ever sailed a yacht single-handed to Antarctica until David Lewis' attempt.

Along the way, he would not touch land for more than fourteen weeks, facing mountainous seas, constant gales, snow storms, and freezing temperatures.

Twice his small yacht was capsized and once it was dismasted 3,500 miles from help.

His survival was a miracle of fortitude, skill, and some luck.

Ice Bird is one of the great true sea stories of the twentieth century.

It is also a tale of human endurance, a testimony of one man's will to overcome almost anything and everythinguphysical and psychologicaluto stay alive.
