by Pattison, Rodney & Barry Pickthall
Rodney Pattisson, MBE, is a three-time Olympic medallist and multi-world-champion who set many race and speed records and (with Lawrie Smith) led Britain’s 1983 challenge for the America’s Cup (they were defeated by eventual winner, "Australia II" ). Intensely private, the renowned sailor here discusses the trials and tribulations he faced enroute to success–and sheds light on the double standards, deceit, political and sporting interference, and outright cheating that he witnessed during his career.
