The Proving Ground: The Inside Story of the 1998 Sydney to Hobart Race

by

In 1998, 115 sailboats set out on the annual race from Sydney to Hobart; only 43 would make it to the Tasmanian city, and six sailors would be dead, the race having turned into the worst modern sailing disaster in 20 years. From the chilling explanation of how an Olympic sailor was catapulted from a yacht and why its crew could do nothing to save him, to the dramatic journeys of two leaky life rafts, "The Proving Ground" is an exhilarating read.
