This autobiography tells the story of both one of the most amazing feats of modern survival and also of the extraordinary efforts of the Australian rescue services and HMAS Adelaide, which on 10th January 1997 pulled lone sailor Tony Bullimore from the Southern Ocean. Bullimore had spent nearly five days sheltering in an air pocket in the upturned hull of his yacht. Despite losing the tip of his left little finger and suffering from hypothermia, dehydration and frostbite, he was in remarkably good shape. This is his own story; of his attempt to complete the Vendee Globe round-the-world race in his yacht, of his life at home in Bristol, and of his instincts for survival in the middle of the ocean, 1500 miles southwest of Australia.
