Listing Detail Tabs

This harrowing shore-side reading should be required reading for all ocean sailors. The first book to recount the disastrous events of the 1998 Sydney to Hobart yacht race.
Rob Mundle takes readers through every white-knuckling hour of the gale that descended in the predawn hours of December 27th 1998, stretching over 900 miles from Australia to New Zealand, bringing with it hurricane strength winds and five-story waves.
In all, 57 sailors were rescued, plucked from the decks of broken boats or from the sea itself under impossible conditions.
Six sailors died. A Sydney-Hobart Race veteran himself, Rob Mundle had total and unequalled access to the people behind the story.
The result is a tale of extreme adventure, extraordinary will, and the overwhelming emotional tales of survivors, rescuers, and the bereaved.
