Pete Goss competed in the 1996-1997 Vendee Globe - a non-stop, 'single-handed' sail from France, around the Southern Ocean (
Antarctica), back to France. He interrupted his voyage to save another competitor from the icey ocean, but still managed to complete the trip.

This book is going to my Father, who loves reading 'sea adventures'

5/19/04 - Finished this last night - loved it! I think I have a crush on Pete Goss :-) This book is about his life leading up to the VG, not just that one race. How he got into sailing, his early races, how difficult it is to put a boat into the water for one of these big races....really interesting and written in a very "chatty" style. Very cool- thanks for the loan!

Mailed this morning to mom-of-one.

Holy Cow! I came home from work and found almost a whole summer worth of sailing reading! I'm in my glory! (And - I'm going up to Maine next week to pickup my sailboat so I'll actually get some REAL sailing in!!!)
