Ocean Warriors Summary


Ocean Warriors: The Thrilling Story of the 2001/02 Volvo Ocean Race by Rob Mundle

A full-blown account of one of the toughest yacht races on the calendar, as author Rob Mundle traces the passage of one of the top teams through the most inhospitable sees on earth in search of glory. Recognised as one of the premier endurance challenges in world yacht racing, the Volvo Ocean Race, formerly known as the Whitbread Round the World Yacht race, is a test of man against the sea, with skill, determination and courage key factors. Rob Mundle follows the crew of the Team News Corp boat, skippered by Briton Jez Fanstone, from the starting port of Southampton in September 2002, to the finish in Kiel, Germany nine months and 32,700 nautical miles later. Having survived broken rudders, damaged sails, a near fatal collision and appalling weather and living conditions, but also having observed some truly amazing sights, the crew have a fascinating story to tell as they battle against the cream of the world's sailing community while struggling to keep their wits about them under extreme physical and mental pressure. A leg-by-leg, blow-by-blow white-knuckle adventure story, Ocean Warriors is vintage Rob Mundle, interspersed with the words of the competitors themselves and exclusive photographs of the yachts and crews in action. Like the race itself, it's nailbiting stuff.
