Product description

Review

'This adventure is a gripping read for the armchair sailor, non-sailor, any skipper - and, for that matter, business leader. Honest, insightful, informative and underlined by the fact that, as a team, they won. Bravo.' -- Pete Goss

'My personal exposure to extreme challenges and an unforgiving, competitive environment is limited to dry land and motor racing; building the Formula One team that became Honda GP, Brawn GP and now Mercedes GP, so I was exposed to the meticulous planning, the careful people management, pure hard work and the extreme stresses involved in trying to accomplish big tasks.

Brendan forced himself through an incredible adventure intended to test himself as both skipper and a leader. When the pressure increased, his instincts, training, attitude and clear thought kicked in. It doesn't surprise me that he was able to keep his crew motivated and bring his yacht home in first place.

In this book, Brendan demonstrates that he is not just able to learn wisdom from others, but also pioneer many solutions that can readily be applied to business scenarios and has been able to record these in a compelling and exciting manner.' -- Adrian Reynard, Founder of Reynard Racing Cars

'A gripping account' --Yachting Life

'Brendan's brutally honest, no-holds-barred account is revealing and instructive, with valuable lessons in leadership and management - as well as never giving up.' -- Yachting Life

'I couldn't put it down!' --www.sailers.co.uk

'...this account of the 2009-2010 Clipper is a winning narrative of ordinary folk thrown in at the deep end of a 35,000-mile contest.' -- Yachting Monthly

'Raw, gripping and brutally honest, Hall reveals how he learned as much from his mistakes as his successes' --Economia

About the Author

Brendan Hall began sailing at the age of four in his home waters off Brisbane, and was racing by the age of 19. He was 27 years old when the 2009/2010 Clipper Race began, and had to transform a motley crew of 18 amateur sailors into a race-winning sailing machine, as well as battling life-threatening weather conditions, gear failure and rescuing two other yachts in the dangerous North Pacific Ocean.
