"The 1998 Sydney to Hobart took us beyond sport, beyond the drive to compete. We found ourselves at the edge of life-and-death survival." -- Ed Psaltsis, winning skipper of 1998 Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race In the extreme sport of open-ocean yacht racing, the 735-mile Sydney to Hobart challenge is considered one of the most treacherous races in the world. December 27, 1998, proved why. Slammed by a freak storm that unleashed 100 mph winds and waves eight stories tall, twenty-four boats were abandoned at sea as hundreds of sailors fought for their lives. This is the riveting story of that tragic race -- the punishing storm, the heroic rescues, the grim loss of life -- and a though-provoking look at the people who risked families and fortunes for victory. pp.243 Illustrated
