"Dorgan's spirit soars – and with it the reader's...Time on the Ocean will be relished by all sailors, to be sure. But it will also give hours of pleasure to anyone who appreciates superb writing and for whom a tale of the human spirit pitted against raw nature is irresistible." -The Irish Times
Time on the Ocean is an exciting account of a sailing adventure from Punto Arenas in Chile around Cape Horn, on to the Malvinas/Falklands and, via Tristan da Cunha, to landfall in Cape Town, South Africa. Underscoring the narrative is the story of author Theo Dorgan's great-grandmother, who died in childbirth off Cape Horn and was buried at sea.
As one would expect from Dorgan - poet, editor, translator, librettist, and broadcaster - this is a poetic and evocative account. Time on the Ocean will appeal not only to sailing enthusiasts and those interested in the adventure aspect of the story, but to those who love an inspirational story, beautifully told.
