Publisher's Summary

In June 2002, Richard Van Pham sets sail from Long Beach to Catalina. Along the way, he runs into a storm and is cast adrift. On September 17, 2002, some 200 miles off the coast of Costa Rica, the men on board the USS McClusky receive their first search and rescue mission. They arrive an hour later to find a 24-foot sailboat with a broken mast and hull, covered with birds.

The crew doesn't see any sign of human life, and hope is looking dim, when 62-year-old Van Pham emerges from the sailboat's cabin. Van Pham has been stranded at sea for four months, living on rainwater and catching fish for food. The sailboat that has been Van Pham's home for four months is in such poor condition that the Navy is forced to sink it. Be there as this gentleman's amazing story of survival unfolds.

Lost at Sea for Four Months!

This was an amazing story of a man lost at sea in a sailboat for four months! As usual, Jim Cantore is an excellent narrator who knows to tell a great story. A little known tale that I had not heard, it was interesting. One of the better Storm Stories I think you will enjoy.
