Enter Douglas Robertson's book. For his superhuman efforts in getting us all home in one piece, and for giving us those two short years aboard Lucette, I shall thank him every day of my life.

Enter Douglas Robertson's book. Drawing from newspaper articles, discussions with family members, Dougal's notes and his own recollections, he breathes life into every aspect of the Robertson clan journey physically or emotionally from their start in Falmouth England, to their eventual rescue by the Japanese ship Toka Maru roughly 300 miles west of Costa Rica.

Douglas Robertson has taken his father's classic book Survive the Savage Sea as his starting point, and has drawn upon a wealth of other sources, not least his own memories of a life-changing experience, to bring us this true story of adventure, of relationships strained to bursting point, of conflict and resolution - ultimately a very human and humbling tale.

Douglas Robertson has taken his father's classic book, Survive the Savage Sea, as his starting point. The Robertson family set sail from the south of England on their 43-foot schooner, LUCETTE, which was holed by killer whales and sank in the Pacific Ocean. Four adults and two children survived the next 38 days adrift, first in a rubber life raft, then crammed into a 9-foot fiberglass dinghy, before being rescued by a passing Japanese fishing vessel.

Douglas Robertson, eldest son of Linda and Dougal Robertson born 1954 and raised as a farmer's son before sailing with the family on the Lucette when he was 16. He went into the British Merchant Navy as a cadet, finally serving as Chief Officer.

A wave broke across the bow and the cold wet spray lashed our faces and we suddenly got an inkling this wasn't going to be a walk in the park. Over the next year-and-a-half the family sailed across the Atlantic, stopping at various Caribbean ports. But 17 months into their voyage, while on the Pacific ocean, the boat was struck by a pod of killer whales near to the Galapagos Islands. The whole boat shook and the keel must've cracked. Dougal Robertson had the idea to sail the raft to the centre of the Pacific and catch the counter current back to America.

'Daddy's a sailor, why don't we sail around the world?' On board their 43-foot schooner Lucette, the Robertson family set sail from the south of England in January 1971 - and in June 1972 Lucette was holed by killer whales and sank in the Pacific Ocean. Four adults and two children survived the next 38 days adrift, first in a rubber life raft and then crammed into a 9-foot fibreglass dinghy, before being rescued by a passing Japanese fishing vessel. This is the story of how they survived, but it also tells of the 18-month voyage of the Lucette, across the Atlantic, around the Caribbean, through the panama Canal and out into the Pacific. It is a vivid and candid account of the delights and hardships, the excitements and the dangers, the emotional highs and lows experienced by the family both before and after the shipwreck.. Douglas Robertson has taken his father's classic book Survive the Savage Sea as his starting point, and has drawn upon a wealth of other sources, not least his own memories of a life-changing experience, to bring us this true story of adventure, of relationships strained to bursting point, of conflict and resolution - ultimately a very human and humbling tale.

This book is worth reading 5 times, because each time you will find something you missed the time before. If you think about your daily life, what irritates and frustrates you, what scares you, what worries you, and contrast it with what this family endured, your troubles will fade away. More importantly you will be inspired by the depths of human courage and tenacity. You will be amazed by the strength of the human body and mind. And for my fellow psychology buffs, you will be intrigued by the survival mentality that persevered and kept these people alive in these conditions.

Wow, great book. The real hero of this book isn't who you might think. Couldn't put it down. All the more real because it's true.

Great book. A little dry, stranded day after day after day after day in a life raft. But very memorable, and highly recommended to anyone who enjoyed books about blue water sailing.

Loved this book, one of my favorite reads that I often mull in my mind.

Especially since I'm mentioned in it in a couple instances and had the opportunity to meet and sail with the Robertsons on the Lucette many years ago. I always thought highly of young Douglas, and I like the way he re-spins the tale (and adds immeasurably to it) that his Dad so adeptly gave us decades ago.

I originally purchased this book for my wife before reading it myself. She has been sailing from a very young age and currently sails a 37 foot sailboat on a monthly basis. She had heard about this most interesting tale of a family adrift at sea after having their boat sunk by a pod of killer whales. Although the whales made no attempt to harm them, after sinking their boat, the whales did devour the whale that had struck their ship and been killed. The family and a hired man tied their life rafts together and drifted in the ocean for many weeks before rescue. It is a story that is true and very captivating to read. The events and relationships between the members of the family and the hired hand are very interesting. Take a chance. There is also a different book about the same event from the view of a different family member but I can't remember the title. You could look it up on the internet if you are interested. I also read it and it has very different perspectives on the same events. If you like tales of struggle and overcoming adversity this is a book for you.

OK, you know that everyone survives, but how they manage to do it is a stunning tale. Now I have to see the movie. . .
I had found a battered copy of "Survive the Savage Sea" at the library bookstore and devoured it. I just couldn't believe what this family went through. I have read the book several times. Only recently I became aware that the son had written his own version and of course I had to read it. He just added to the original story which was kind of strange, so I ended up skimming a lot because I had just reread the original. This story shows a more disturbing side of the dynamics which I guess the father glossed over in his book. But it was interesting to know what they had all gone on to do and I'm glad that the kids were able to go on and have decent lives despite a very traumatic experience.
