From the cover: “The setting of Geoffrey Jenkins’ latest adventure story is the storm-tossed, iceberg infested South Atlantic. Jetwind, a revolutionary type of sailing ship, fully automated and computerized, is carrying out her shakedown cruise ostensibly to prove to a fuel-hungry shipping world that modern sail can compete in efficiency with costly oil burning ships. But in fact she is also carrying out top-secret tests of even greater value to the NATO naval forces, thereby drawing deadly counter-action from the Russian fleet, as a Soviet bid to seal off the vital Drake Passage between South America and Antarctica is laid between bare.”
