Author Marlin Bree has been at the crossroads of daredevil sailing and racing for decades, writing about fellow sailors in magazines and in books, including Broken Seas, in which he reconstructs the final hours of the famous around-the-world solo racer, Mike Plant. The former Minnesotan disappeared on the North Atlantic, on his way to begin a new race, the Vendee Globe, in his new state-0f-the-art 60-foot racer, Coyote. Later, when the overturned sloop was found, the lead bulb keel had somehow broken off. No trace of the racer himself was ever found -- forever a mystery of the sea. What happened here?
