A Book review
of Jessica's "True Spirit" in the San Jose Mercury News.
"Not that the trip is without drama. Watson rounds the treacherous Cape Horn of South America uneventfully. But about a week later, a gale near the Falkland Islands grows bigger than forecast. She records winds of 65 knots (75 mph) before the instrument breaks. The large, steep seas knock her boat sideways into the water four times, once at a 180-degree angle. (Although she doesn't see the wave, she can tell how far the boat has tipped by the dingy water line the marine toilet leaves on the wall.)
