The Rescue: A Romance of the Shallows, Volume 17
We meet adventurer Tom Lingard aboard his brig Lightning. His ship is stuck with no wind on their way to...somewhere. There may be pirates in the waters around them, but it is not a pirate who arrives beside them in a small boat. A yacht has grounded on a sandbank and the men in the boat have been sent out with urgent messages for help. But Lingard is dismayed to learn the exact location of the stranded yacht, for it turns out to be the very spot he is heading for himself, and he knows the unexpected presence of the yacht will complicate his plans.
