Description: On February 11th, 2001, Ellen MacArthur sailed into port in France, completing the Vendee Globe, the world's toughest race. Alone and unsupported, she had spent more than three months at sea and had coped with storms, exhaustion, rigging failures, and a catastrophic collision with a submerged object. But Ellen never gave up and, at the age of 24, she became the first woman to circumnavigate the globe. This is Ellen's story, from her childhood in land locked Derbyshire, to that historic race.
In finishing yachting's toughest race, the Vendee Globe, Ellen MacArthur became the youngest person ever to complete the race and the fastest woman ever to circumnavigate the globe. The scenes that greeted her arrival were extraordinary; thousands of people lined the waterfront in France to cheer 'La Petite Anglaise'. This is her story so far. Dramatic and and deeply affecting, it will move and inspire all who read it.
