Brilliant insight into public ocean racing. Must read story.,
By A Customer
This review is from: A Voyage For Madmen: Nine men set out to race each other around the world. Only one made it back ... (Hardcover)
More like fiction, but its accurate. The author has captured the spirit of ocean racing and the reason why men put to sea. I knew most of the yachtsmen he writes of, and for me it was a journey back in time. I too sailed some of the oceans and his descriptions are vividly real.
It's a must read for sailors, and for anyone interested in the sea and yachting. I was sorry to finish the book which read more like a fiction than fact, but its real though and as the nautical descriptions have been simplified for landlubbers its an easy and capturing read for anyone.
It's a good literary piece.
