The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is the ultimate long
distance challenge - a 35,000-mile circumnavigation of the globe,
contested by amateur crews in identical racing yachts. The 2010
winner was 28-year-old Brendan Hall and his crew in Spirit of
Australia. Although Brendan was the youngest and least experienced
skipper in the race, the win was no accident - it was the
culmination of years of training, skilled navigation and a
leadership style way beyond his years. His skills were soon put to
the test - in the middle of a North Pacific hurricane, Brendan went
to the rescue of a competing yacht and skippered both boats across
one of the most feared oceans in the world. This brutally honest,
no-holds-barred account is revealing and instructive, with valuable
lessons in leadership and management - as well as never giving up.
Thrown in quite literally at the deep end, he is pushed to the
limit, and learns lessons you can only learn the hard way.
