John Aldridge and Anthony Sosinski, "A Speck in the Sea"
In the dead of night on July 24, 2013, John Aldridge was thrown out of the back of the Anna Mary while his fishing partner, Anthony Sosinski, slept below.
As desperate hours ticked by, Sosinski, the families, the local fishing community, and the U.S. Coast Guard in three states mobilized in an unprecedented search effort that culminated in a rare and exhilarating success.
A tale of survival, perseverance, and community, A Speck in the Sea tells of one man's struggle to survive as friends and strangers work separately, and together, to bring him home. Aldridge's wrenching first-person account intertwines with the narrative of the massive, constantly evolving rescue operation designed to save him.
John Aldridge and Anthony Sosinski co-own and operate the Anna Mary, a lobster fishing boat, in the open ocean surrounding Montauk. Best friends for decades, Aldridge and Sosinski are seasoned sailors and fishermen.
