The Sydney to Hobart yacht race is one of the world’s major sporting events. In 1998, it became one of the world’s major sporting disasters.
Six sailors tragically perished, countless others suffered injuries and numerous yachts sank or were badly damaged. The subsequent search and rescue operation was one of the most phenomenally accomplished peacetime efforts the world has ever seen.
In Fatal Storm, Rob Mundle takes readers from all around the world into the eye of the storm and the heart of bravery as the 1998 Sydney to Hobart Yacht race faltered.
‘Mundle’s portrayals of courageous sailors and heroic rescuers fighting for their lives are as vivid as any I have read.’ John Rousmaniere, author Fastnet, Force 10
