On a warm spring morning in May 1986, twelve crew members were sailing the Atlantic on perhaps the most historically accurate sailboat of its day, the Pride of Baltimore. They were on the journey home, completely unaware of the desperate fight for survival that was to come. With little warning, in a patch of the Bermuda Triangle, a sudden fierce storm roared across the ocean, its 70-knot winds overwhelming the beautiful schooner. Within minutes, Pride sank, hundreds of miles from land, leaving four dead and eight locked in a terrifying battle against the sea. Veteran journalist Tom Waldron takes readers inside Pride, from her glorious launch to final voyage. Pride of the Sea tells, in vivid detail, the story of those who survived and those lost at sea. And it examines why the tragedy occurred and addresses responsibility for the disaster.
