PETER MONTGOMERY THE VOICE OF YACHTING, Bill Francis

For the best part of 40 years, Peter Montgomery, broadcasting on the rise and rise of sailing, has been a constant radio and television presence in the lives of New Montgomery coverZealanders. His “America’s Cup is now New Zealand’s Cup”, is entrenched in the country’s lexicon. No-one has done more to establish sailing’s place as a mainstream sport, locally and internationally.

In 'Peter Montgomery, The Voice of Yachting', author Bill Francis explores the pivotal events and the commentator’s relationships with the high-flyers of the sailing world – Peter Blake, Chris Dickson, Russell Coutts, Dean Barker, Michael Fay, Grant Dalton and many others.

But there’s much more to the Montgomery story – this boy from Dunedin who went on to become a giant of New Zealand broadcasting. He covered nine Olympics Games, was on the sideline of big rugby matches for 40 years, sparred with Muhammad Ali and covered big athletics, rowing and other sports.

The book also covers the poignant Montgomery family life. This is truly a biography for more than just the sailing aficionado.
