Pressure Falling

(2011)
A non fiction book by

 
Are you warm, safe and dry?

Good - because the ocean can be a dangerous place and never more so than when the barometric pressure plummets and huge waves start to rise up from the deep.

These five short stories - chilling, funny and scary in turns - will show you just how ugly and dangerous the sea can become. Make sure you are wrapped up warm and safe when you read this book, because the raw power of storms comes roaring to life in these terrifying tales:


  • In 1959, the Smeeton's tried to round Cape Horn in a tiny wooden sailboat - big mistake. And they made it twice.

  • The 1979 Fastnet Race - the greatest tragedy ever to hit the sailing community.

  • In 1993, Cam Lewis tried to fly past Cape Horn in the quickest sailboat on the planet - instead, he was humbled into a battle for survival.

  • In 2001, Michel Desjoyeaux would have lost the Vendee Globe to Ellen MacArthur, if it wasn't for this one inspired 'MacGyver' moment.

  • Discover how the scientists came to accept they were wrong about rogue waves.


Pressure Falling contains just five short non-fiction stories, followed by a sample from one of Mark Chisnell's novels. The latter may tempt you into buying another book... so please don't get Pressure Falling if you feel that this is in some way underhand.

Pressure Falling has consistently topped the Watersports chart on Amazon.co.uk.

Mark Chisnell's other books include spy thriller The Fulcrum Files - also a #1 book, topping the historical mystery and thriller charts on Amazon.com.
