Description - Fatal Storm by Robert Mundle

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, countless others suffered injuries, and numerous yachts sank or were badly damaged. The subsequent search and rescue operation was one of the most phenomenally accomplished peacetime efforts the world has ever seen. Telling this story of challenge and survival, Rob Mundle details the history of the race, the excitement of the start and the thrill of competition. It contains extensive interviews with officials, crews, survivors and rescue service personnel, and relates like no other the calamity and tragedy of this classic offshore disaster. 'There are many highly competent skippers and crew...but there is no one who could not benefit from a quiet evening with Fatal Storm.' The Times 'Riveting and harrowing.' The Telegraph 'A must-read for anyone who races offshore.' Yachts and Yachting
