New book: Salt, Sweat, Tears

Salt Sweat Tears coverYesterday, 30 September, a new rowing book saw the light of day. Salt, Sweat, Tears – The Men who Rowed the Oceans by Adam Rackley and published by Penguin Books is a book about the brave men who have taken on the adventure and endurance to row across the Atlantic just because it is there. Author Rackley himself and his friend Jimmy Arnold crossed the Atlantic, from the Canary Islands to Antigua, a voyage that took seventy-six days.

Salt, Sweat, Tears is not only about Rackley and Arnold’s journey, it also chronicles those who rowed before, for example Harbo & Samuelson; Ridgway & Blyth; Johnstone & Hoare, who were lost at sea; and Hamill & Stubbs. It is what it says in a press release for the book, that fewer people have completed an Ocean crossing than have climbed Mount Everest.

A full book review of Salt, Sweat, Tears will soon follow here on HTBS.
