Blue Water Classics
This new book on Australia’s most famous of the blue water classics, the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, will become a collector’s item for anyone who has an interest in the race. It features an array of intimate portraits of some of the absolute legends of the race, including owners, crew, administrators and even the odd journalist.
Backed by extensive interviews from journalist and race media manager Di Pearson, who probably knows more about the race than anyone else alive, this is a book that examines the people who make the race. It is not about the boats.
If you have competed in the race, plan to in the future, or if you just love great stories about people doing exceptional things, then you will love this book.
All the adrenaline and drama of the great race is here – the heroes, the villains, the folklore and everything in between.
