    Default Berserk in the antartic by David Mercy

    Great story, very well written, of how two backpackers join a 19year old Norwegian in his Albin Vega, in which he has just rounded Cape Horn singlehanded with and sail to Antarctica to explore and follow Shackleton's expedition route.

    Drama, bravery, mutiny, shipwreck, it has everything. And is very well written.

    Great book, read it about 10 years ago, I believe it's available with a different title too. Did I imagine a thread on this today that's now vanished concerning the skipper Jarle?
