Traveling in the Bermuda Triangle

The famous Bermuda Triangle delivered a harrowing tale of survival. Read about Captain Fry’s experiences sailing to Bermuda, and the huge challenges he and his crew faced as the weather changed for the worst and the seas got ugly. Just another example of the uncertainties at sea, and how training for the worst pays off.
