A story of disaster and survival on the open sea The lure of paradise was unmistakable, and Bill Butler was on a quest to find it with his wife Simonne – riding the Pacific currents on their sloop Siboney, with a world of possibilities ahead. But 1200 miles from land, the alluring ocean showed its deadly side when, without warning, a pod of pilot whales attacked their yacht, battering it until it sank. The dazed couple were left drifting in mid ocean in a leaky six foot raft meant for coastal waters, with only a few hastily grabbed provisions to sustain them. Simonne, who had never truly shared Bill’s dream of circumnavigating the globe, blamed him bitterly for their desperate plight. 275 pages PB
