Eighty-eight men set off from beneath the ramparts of Alicante's Castle of Santa Barbara, but only 36 would journey the full 37,000 miles to finish in the White Nights of St Petersburg.

Good Read!

Enjoyed the adventure....more detail would have been a bonus, much of the book was written as an adventure story without much historical detail to supplement. However, the character was fun to follow and the book kept me going.

This book has to be the best inside view of what it's like to do the toughest race in the world.Mark's book takes you onboard each boat and gives you a blow by blow account of how the crew reacted to each situation that was thrown at them from major equipment failures to a major boat refit & turn around,to running aground right at the start of the leg.
It's so descriptive that you just may be able to feel the boats lurch up 20 ft waves and get knocked around by 40-50 kt winds.I think this is

I had high hopes but ultimately it doesn't get close to being as good as a good Esquire article. I think maybe that's the problem. Aside from the dodgy punctuation (although the writing seemed to get better as the book went on), the detail seemed to bog the book down and the reader quickly loses track of who's who and who had what problem when. But two stars sums it up: it was OK but it could have been better (and presumably it is better with the pictures).

Super technical and not in depth enough. But a nice idea.
