About the Author
Robin Knox-Johnston entered the Merchant Navy at the age of 17,
obtaining his Master's Certificate 8 years later. Of the 9 competitors
he was the only one to complete the Sunday Times Golden Globe Race in
1968 after 312 days alone at sea and win the trophy for the first solo
non-stop circumnavigation. Since then Robin has participated in many
ocean races including the Whitbread, and in 1994 co-skippered Enza with
Sir Peter Blake to set a new world record for a circumnavigation. He
has been UK Yachtsman of the Year twice, International Yachtsman of the
Year in 1995, and was knighted in 1995. He still owns and sails Suhaili.

I have read most of the books surrounding this race from both participants and other authors and they are all wonderful and together you realize that this was a fantastic event full of everything. 9 participants at sea, All very different men facing both themselves and the elements. I recommend all the books as a collection.
