Why would a seasoned skipper sail an aging ship near the path of an approaching monster hurricane? Michael Tougias examines Captain Robin Walbridge's motives and mystique through the words of those who knew and sailed with him. The result of this research is this harrowing tale of shipwreck in Superstorm Sandy, including the breathtaking rescue by US Coast Guard pilots far from land in the midst of the storm. Michael will present the story in an illustrated lecture. Copies of the book, co-authored with Douglas A. Campbell will be available for purchase and signing.
