‘I confess to several moments of mixed excitement and apprehension … It was a clear night, the wind and tide were in my favour. I felt really up for it.’


Kayak Across the Atlantic is an extraordinary first-hand account of the first ever single-handed crossing of the North Atlantic, achieved against all formidable odds. Former SAS sergeant Pete Bray’s solo unsupported voyage in a flimsy twenty-seven-foot kayak is one of the most courageous feats undertaken by man through one of the most inhospitable oceans in the world. For seventy-six days in 2001, the indomitable Cornishman paddled relentlessly across more than 2,000 miles of sea, enduring extremes of fatigue, equipment failure and foul weather before finally making landfall on the west coast of Ireland a few days before 9/11.


Written in an approachable and matter-of-fact style, this is an incredible true adventure story.
