Proving Ground
Excellent book, hard to put down. Really makes you think and imagine what it would be like in a situation such as this true story.

An excellent account of an amazing race. If your holiday is longer than 2 days you'll need another book!
Steve S. (04/01/03)

What an excellent book. As an avid sailor myself, I found it almost impossible to put this book down.
I really felt that I was part of this race and felt the suffering of the various crews. It is a must read.

What a great book, anybody that likes a story about sailing should read this book!!!
