Description: The Sydney to Hobart yacht race is one of the world's major sporting events. In 1998, a severe storm turned this race into a disaster, as well as the 1979 Fastnet Race. It started December 27, stretching over 900 miles from Australia to New Zealand, bringing with it hurricane strength winds, five-story waves, and impossible conditions. Many yachts sank or were badly damaged, 57 sailors were rescued from liferafts or from the deck of their dismasted boats, six sailors tragically died. A Sydney-Hobart Race veteran himself, Rob Mundle collected many personal stories from people involved in the race, survivors or rescuers, managing to tell a story of extreme interest and emotion.
