Editorial Reviews


"A Touch of Jonah gives us landlubbers the next best thing to being part of that exhilarating, grueling and wonder-filled obstacle course that is the Transpac ocean race without our having to run its dangers. This is a superior piece of craft--the transference of the actual sensate quality of race sailing to words on paper. And Holton has done it, surprisingly enough, in the form of a mystery book, one of his Father Bredder series"--The Los Angeles Times

From the Author

"I have been sailing since boyhood," writes Leonard Wibberley "and have always wanted to enter an ocean race. I had a 40-foot yawl named Bahia and tried to enter her in last year's Transpac but she was ruled out as being of an old-fashioned gaff rig on her main.

"So I sold the yawl and bought a modern 34-foot racing sloop. Alas, she did not qualify in on particular measurement and was also ruled out. But I decided to race this new boat
Cu Na Mara (Gaelic for "Hound of the Sea") anyway.

"She proved almost impossible to handle in the waves of the ocean. For 1500 miles we fought her, being twice knocked on our beam ends when she would not answer her helm and ran across the wind. We finally put in at Maui in lead of Oahu, 17 days out of San Pedro. We had suffered rudder trouble and some damage to the center board.

"On our return to California, my son Christopher resolutely turned his back on the sea and look to football as being less hazardous."
