the Sydney to Hobart yacht race is one of the world's major sporting events. In 1998, it became one of the world's major sporting disasters. Six sailors tragically perished and numerous yachts sank or were badly damaged. the subsequent search and rescue operation was one of the most phenomenally accomplished peacetime effortsthe world has ever seen. In this fully updated edition to mark the 10th anniversary of the tumultuous race, Rob Mundle, one of Australia's leading journalists and yachtsmen, tells this story of challenge and survival with compassion, vigour and understanding. Drawing from extensive interviews with officials, crews, survivors and rescue service personnel, he relates like no other the calamity and triumph of the 1998 blue water classic. 'Mundle's portrayals of courageous sailors and heroic rescuers fighting for their lives are as vivid as any I have read.'- John Rousmaniere, author Fastnet, Force 10



My great great grandfather was a shipwright, so it is in the genes to love all thing maritime. Rob Mundle writes with considerable flair and a great knowledge of the sea and seafarers. To my mind he is without peer as a storyteller of adventure sailing, and while there is the sense of sadness that pervades the book, it is ultimately uplifting and I am full of admiration for his ability to write such wonderful, descriptive passages.
