Search - List of Books by Hal Roth

Hal Roth (1927 - October 25, 2008) was an American sailor and author. In 1971 he was awarded the Blue Water Medal of the Cruising Club of America. He died of lung cancer.

Hal Roth was an avid sailor and prolific sailing writer. The success of his first book, about the John Muir Trails in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, prompted him and his wife to try the precarious worlds of adventuring and writing. They quit their jobs, and began a 19 month voyage around the Pacific in a 35 foot sloop. Their vast journey culminated in the publication of his first sailing book, "Two on a Big Ocean."

He and his wife, Margaret, subsequently made a life of sailing and writing about it, including sailing around South America and a circumnavigation via Panama, the Torres Strait, and Suez. He then raced single-handedly around the world in the 1986-87 BOC Challenge, finishing fourth in a class of fourteen.
