'Overboard' by Mike Tougias - NE Tour

I just attended a RIVETING presentation by author Mike Tougias and shipwreck survivor Loch Riedy (sp?). Tougias's book, "Overboard" is spell-binding, and Loch's first-person account of the incident and his incredible rescue was fantastic. The tour dates can be found here: <>.

To read about, then hear, Loch's account of being found, at night, without an EPIRB, without a life raft, in a near hurricane 300 miles from Nantucket as his strobe died is to REALLY appreciate sitting here at home typing this. If the link doesn't work, just Google "Mike Tougias" and you'll get there.

The book is fantastic!!!! If you get it, don't plan on doing much of anything for the next day or so - you won't be able to put it down.

A man who is not afraid of the sea will soon be drowned, he said, for he will be going out on a day he shouldn't. But we do be afraid of the sea, and we only be drowned now and again.
