I loved this book--pretty much read it out loud to my family and then insisted that they read it too. It's an account of the first non-stop round the world unrestricted multihull race which is placed in context by a history of round the world sailing. If you like this sort of adventure writing--a la Into Thin Air or Godforsaken Sea then this one is a must.
