Description: In the world of blue water, or open ocean, yacht racing, the Sydney to Hobart challenge is considered one of the most treacherous races in the world. Nineteen-ninety-eight proved why. Slammed by a sudden freak storm that unleashed ninety-mile-per-hour winds and waves seven stories tall, twenty-four boats were abandoned at sea as sixty-three sailors fought for their lives. Six would die, including two who would never be found. Here, premier adventure writer Martin Dugard recreates the emotional saga of these windswept sailors -- survivors and victims alike -- shedding fascinating light on this extreme sport
