When Ross Sterling, captain of the deep-sea tug Southern Tide, saves an Argentinian freighter from certain disaster on the rocks of Jason West Cay, little is he aware of the events this will set in motion. Arriving in Buenos Aires, Ross accepts a contract with the Compania Ballenera Argentina to tow a salvage barge to the derelict whaling station at Leith Harbour on sout Georgia Island. Days later the Falkland Islands are invaded.
Chartered by the Argentine Navy, Southern Tide is working Stanley harbour when two Exocet missile canisters appear in town. Fired from shore, one damages a British warship, while the other disappears into the Scotia Sea on the rear deck of the San Carlos, an Argentine oil supply ship captained under duress by Martin Sanchez, whose daughter has disappeared.
In a desperate bid to avoid a maritime disaster that could cost Britain the war, Ross sails for South Georgia. Only Southern Tide and her civilian crew stand between the Exocet missile and its intended target, the cruise liner Canberra.
From the drama of high seas rescues to the city of Buenos Aires, Falklands Target carries the reader through turbulent times and some of the most storm ravaged oceans in the Southern Hemisphere.
