Who doesn’t love a good storm story? While none of us nec­es­sar­ily want to be in heavy weather and in peril, some­times it comes with the ter­ri­tory. If you’re read­ing this, you’ve sur­vived what­ever the sea has thrown at you. In this is­sue, John Rous­man­iere, author of the clas­sics “Fast­net, Force 10” and “The An­napo­lis Book of Sea­man­ship,” shares a few of his sto­ries of scary blows. We’re won­der­ing if you have a story or two to share.

Send them to us at en­gage@aim­me­dia.com and we’ll post them on our web­site. Keep them un­der 1,000 words, in­clud­ing em­bel­lish­ments. Send pho­tos if you have them. The top three sto­ries, as de­ter­mined by our staff, win a free three-year

The top three videos, as de­ter­mined by our staff, win a free
