This novel is a fictional story. The idea for it was in my mind for a long time during my night watches on the bridge when I sailed as an officer, chief mate and captain. The question was, if I remain alone on the vessel in the middle of the ocean, can I bring it alone to a safe landing? However, to be alone, something must have happened to all the other crew members. What if all this happened – not in the present when I have enough experience as a captain, but as a cadet on my first voyage – and not only did I have to solve technical problems but also survive after the vessel was attacked by pirates? Can somebody solve all these problems and more psychological ones that appear due to loneliness and disappointment when the vessel is not found by the maritime authorities? Will the main character Răzvan Mândrescu be able to solve all these problems and save his life, the vessel and its cargo? You can find out if he succeeded or not by reading the captivating story Alone Against the Ocean.


Captain C was born in Dobrogea, Romania. He graduated from Maritime Academy and set sail as a deck officer, chief mate, and master seafaring vessels. He is an honorary member of the Romanian Shipmasters Association and a member of the Romanian Writers Union. He has published eleven books until now (novels and short stories) in Romania of which three have already been translated and published in the USA.

    "Alone against the ocean" is an adventure novel that captivates the reader, transposes him into the skin of the main character, makes him feel the feelings and emotions of great intensity. It is a book that you read without interruption forgetting your own existential needs, a book that nourishes and enriches you spiritually and emotionally. I believe that this book can satisfy all literary tastes regardless of culture, geographical area or nationality.
    "Alone against the ocean" is a book worth reading and which you can read after a while with the same pleasure.
