A Voyage for Madmen

by Nichols, Peter

CAD $24.95 CAD $8.99

In 1968 nine sailors set off on the most daring race ever held: to circumnavigate the globe alone, non-stop. It was a race that had never been run–and one that would forever change the face of sailing. Ten months later, only one of the nine men crossed the finish line, earning fame, wealth, and glory. Nichols chronicles a contest of the individual against the sea, waged at a time before cell phones, satellite dishes, and GPS. This is a tale of sailors driven by their dreams and demons, of horrific storms in the Southern Ocean, and of brief moments when one decision means the difference between life and death.
