It is ten years since Australia's largest peacetime search and rescue mission was activated in heinous, storm-ravaged conditions off the southeast coast of the mainland. It came when the 115 yachts contesting the 98th edition of one of the world's great sporting events, the Sydney to Hobart race, were engulfed by hurricane-like conditions. Six sailors perished, another 55 were plucked to safety through the incredibly heroic deeds of rescuers. At the peak of this calamity the mountainous, breaking seas were the height of a ten-storey building. Fatal Storm is the internationally acclaimed bestseller that gave an enthralling inside account of the tragedy. Now, a decade later, Mundle revisits the disaster and appraises its consequences on many of the key players. He also discovers how a catastrophe of this magnitude has benefited search and rescue operations worldwide.
