A Race Too Far

by Eakin, Chris

CAD $16.99

Eakin masterfully tells the story of the ground-breaking and often tragic 1968 Golden Globe race. Nine sailors started the race, four pulled out within weeks. The five competitors who continued each have a remarkable story. They were Chay Blyth, who’d rowed the Atlantic but had no sailing experience, Nigel Tetley, who led the pack until his boat sank, Donald Crowhurst, who tried to fake his passage, went mad, and walked overboard, Bernard Moitessier, who turned away from the finish line and just kept on sailing, and the winner (and sole finisher), Britain’s celebrated Robin Knox-Johnston.
