But the most refreshing point for me was his reason for making this grueling journey. Wilson had arranged in advance to speak to thousands of school kids from around the globe online every day right in their own classrooms. In this way, they could participate in an amazing real-life event while simultaneously learning about everything from marine biology, history, and technology to geography, weather systems, navigation--and the extreme sport of racing sailboats single-handed off-shore.
This book is a must read about one man's struggle against the odds, not for riches or fame, but to provide an exciting learning experience for kids thru virtual participation in a three month, round the world solo sailing race.
The book brings his experience to LIFE- BUY IT
