A Race Too Far by Chris Eakin


In 1968, Golden Globe race challenged its competitors to achieve what no one yet had: sailing round the world solo and without stopping. It was to be the ultimate test of endurance.  Of the nine sailors who started the race, only one would complete it. Alone for months on the end in the middle of oceans, often with no radio contact, the men suffered violent storms, extreme physical challenges, shipwreck and for Donald Crowhurst, ultimately mental collapse and suicide. A Race Too Far recreates the adventure and drama of a race that set records, but also ended in tragedy.
