Format: Paperback
I am by no means the sailing type, as I wont go into any water unless it is crystal clear and I can see what is swimming around me. So, this book is not just for the ocean savvy! This is a true story of a man who sails the smallest sail boat EVER accross the North Atlantic Ocean. His boat is under 6 feet long. After spending over 2 months at sea, he finally docks in England. This book is the sailors actual journal logs from his long trip.. The emotions go from excited to depressed, to almost hallucianite. This is one of the best books I have ever read, and would highly suggest it to anyone who likes REAL LIFE stories. If anyone knows the author, please have him email me at my address! WOW! What a book!

The story of "Father's Day" is one of persistence, survival and stubborness. Vihlen is a very brave man--Korean fighter jock, airline pilot, and TWO-time, record-setting trans-atlantic sailor in a "miniboat." Very interesting to get into this guy's head during his long ordeal. A good read...not just a trip's diary.

Intriguing reading of an adventure at sea that few would ever consider and even fewer would ever attempt and even fewer would succeed.

This is a great book for anyone who likes adventure and any sailors out there. It tells how Hugo crossed the North Atlantic in a sailboat less than 6 feet long to set the world record. It's about the mini-sailboat, failed attempts, survival, and success. I'm passing my copy around the marina; everybody loves reading it.

This book was the best read I have had in quite a while. One does not need to be a sailor at all to enjoy this TRUE tale of adventure on the North Atlantic. The "rollercoaster of emotions" was well documented; to such an extent that I would recommend it to anyone! Good Luck in 2002 Hugo!
