The Spirit of Rose-Noelle
119 Days Adrift, a Survival Story
By John Glennie, Joan Grehan (Illustrated by)

SIGNED BY John Glennie

Four days after leaving NZ on a 2 week voyage to Tonga the Rose Noelle is capsized by a giant wave. After drifting in a huge loop for 119 days they clamber ashore on Great Barrier Island. Not one of the crew is the same man who set sail in June 1989, for John Glennie the change is complete a new life has begun.

One of four survivors describes his 119 days adrift in a capsized sailboat on the open seas, discussing how he and the other three men learned to catch fish, trap rainwater, and face the ravages of the sun.
