Item description for Tall Ships Down by Daniel S. Parrott...
For all it romance, the tall-ship renaissance has a tragic side. Daniel S. Parrott re-creates the losses of five sail-training vessels, and explores the roles played by ship stability, structural integrity, weather, human error, and standards of risk in tragedies at sea. He works from offical documents, survivor and expert interviews, and his own tall-ship experience.
