Summary
This is the story of the 1996 Vendée Globe, the most dangerous of all sailing races, as experienced by the fourteen men and two women competitors. Over the next six months, each waged a solitary battle to stay alive against six-story waves, bone-chilling cold, ice-laden seas and their own physical and mental limitations. An electrifying account of human courage and endurance, Derek Lundy's brilliant storytelling takes us not only into the maritime action, but also the sailors' spirits
