Here is the dramatic hour-by-hour account of the struggles faced by the eight crewmembers of the Fair Wind
and the Sea Fever
as they were ambushed by a horrific surprise storm. Facing hurricane-force winds and massive ninety-foot waves, few were left alive to tell the tale.
On the morning of November 21, 1980, two small boats set out for Georges Bank, a lucrative but perilous lobster fishing ground off the coast of Cape Cod. The National Weather Service had forecast typical fall weather, and the young, rugged crewmen aboard the Sea Fever and the Fair Wind had no reason to expect that this trip would be any different from the dozens they'd made earlier in the season. But the only weather buoy in the area was malfunctioning, and the National Weather Service had failed to reveal this critical detail. And as the two small boats headed out to sea, a colossal storm was brewing to the southeast, a furious maelstrom that would batter the boats with sixty-foot waves and hurricane-force winds. Gripping and heart-pounding, Fatal Forecast
is unforgettable true story about the collision of two spectacular forces: the brutality of nature and the human will to survive.
