The first ebook to recount the disastrous occasions of the 1998 Sydney to Hobart yacht race, Fatal Storm is bound to be a favored paperback choice. Rob Mundle takes readers via each white-knuckling hour of the gale that descended within the predawn hours of December 27, stretching over 900 miles from Australia to New Zealand, bringing with it storm power winds and five-story waves. In all, fifty seven sailors have been rescued, plucked from the decks of damaged boats or from the ocean itself lower than most unlikely stipulations. Six sailors died.
A Sydney-Hobart Race veteran himself, Rob Mundle had overall and unequaled entry to the folk in the back of the tale. the result's a story of utmost experience, amazing will, and the overpowering emotional stories of survivors, rescuers, and the bereaved.
