As Max Young sailed alone on a dark, moonless night about 60 miles off the coast of Mexico, his life was about to change forever. On June 12, 2012, a gray whale breached and hit the portside stern of his 50-foot sailboat, Reflections, causing irreparable damage. While the three bilge pumps struggled to keep up with the incoming seawater, Max was racing against time to save the boat and his own life. Reckoning at Sea: Eye to Eye With a Gray Whale is a true story about a man living his dream of circumnavigating the world, and his harrowing rescue just 490 miles short of his final destination.



“I could see the whale’s enormous head, and its dark blackish gray eye. I had the feeling the whale must have seen me also.”
