Unsinkable is a personal memoir/autobiography by Abby Sunderland and Lynn Vincent, published by Thomas Nelson.

Sunderland describes her life growing up in a large family and her love of the sea from an early age, cultivated by her father’s passion and extended family vacations on a sailboat.

The book describes Abby’s attempt at 16 years of age to become the youngest solo, unsupported person to sail around the globe. It describes her voyage, her forced stop for repairs in Cape Town, South Africa and her eventual shipwreck in the middle of the Indian Ocean, 2000 miles from anywhere, when a rogue wave rolled her sailboat, Wild Eyes, and snapped off its 50-foot mast.

Sunderland describes her amazing rescue, from activating her EPIRB, an emergency beacon, to her location by an Australian search and rescue plane and her rescue by the French ship, La Reunion.
