Adrift Seventy-Six Days Lost at Sea Author:Steven Callahan On the night of January 29, 1982, Steven Callahan set sail in his small sloop from the Canary Islands bound for the Caribbean. Thus began one of the most remarkable sea adventures of all time. Six days out on Feb 4th, the sloop sank, and Callahan found himself adrift in the Atlantic in a five-and-a-half-foot inflatable raft with only three pound... more »s of food and eight pints of water. He would drift for seventy-six days over eighteen hundred miles of ocean, fighting off sharks with a makeshift spear, and watching nine ships pass by without turning back, before he reached land and rescue. A story of anguish and horror, hope--and survival.
