From surviving torpedos in WWII to pioneering the Caribbean charter trade, this autobiography plots an exciting voyage across four decades of Boudreau's passion for sailing and schooners. This account describes his adventures under sail, from a confrontation with a 65-foot rogue wave and a fight with drug pirates in the Bahamas to an eerie encounter with a tiger shark and the onslaught of a vicious hurricane.
Robert Louis Boudreau grew up in the Caribbean, became an avid spear-fisherman as well as a successful big game fisherman. Through hurricanes, an attempted drug hijacking in the Bahamas, and a shipboard fire during a storm off the African coast, he has led the adventurer's life. Swallowing the anchor in 1996, he returned to Canada where he devotes his time to writing. He lives in Chester, Nova Scotia.
