Kayak Across the Atlantic
by Bray, Peter
This first-hand account of an epic voyage across the North Atlantic ocean in a kayak in 2001 tells the story of Bray’s successful attempt to make the first ever solo unsupported crossing in a paddle-powered kayak. The author’s first attempt a year earlier ended abruptly off the coast of Newfoundland when he had to be rescued. He vividly describes the pain and discomfort he endured during his second attempt, encountering some of the worst weather for many years, and his sheer determination to succeed during the 76 days he was at sea.
