Left for Dead: The Untold Story of the Tragic 1979&hellip by Nick Ward

I loved this book and being 23, the same age as nick at the time of the disaster left me with so many questions and thoughts as to how i would react if i was in the same situation. Being a sea going person i do have an understanding of the sea and what it can throw at you but i cannot even begin to imagine the conditions Nick was having to deal and cope with.

Fatal Storm: The 54th Sydney to Hobart Race by Rob Mundle

This book is a great read for sailors and non sailors alike. It gives a great insight into what the race conditions were like and what experiences were had by competitors and the many heros who risked their lives to save the dozens of stricken sailors. You'll almost be there yourself. I recommend this book to everyone, you won't be able to put it down.
