A Great Read!
To anyone with a fascination for the sea this book is a must read. It is filled with background information about the Vendee Globe and the sailors who participate. It is astounding to discover the fact that there are people who are willing to accept the challenge of participating in such a demanding and dangerous event. The description of the sailors' encounters with the elements, particularly in the Southern Ocean, are fascinating and will raise the hair on just about anyone's neck who has never been in a similar situation. I recommend this book highly to armchair adventurers and true sailors alike. You will not be disappointed!
