From the blurb: "On 8 June 1978 the world heard the astonishing news that 28-year-old New Zealander Naomi James had become the first woman to sail single-handed around the globe via Cape Horn - and in the fastest time ever.

"This book ïs the frank, vivid and enthralling account of the most enthralling account of them all. Naomi tells of her despair when the radio broke and she faced months of silence; of her embarrassment at discovering she had been confusing latitude with longitude; of her grief when the ship's kitten Boris went overboard; and of the black horror of a dawn capsize off Cape Horn."
