Taking on the World, Paperback


When Ellen finished the Vendee Globe, yachting's toughest race aged just 24 the nation took her to it's heart.

The depth of the affection for Ellen is extraordinary - she makes people feel like they can do anything!

This is her story, written in true Ellen style, in her own words, without the help of a ghost writer.

Passionate, dramatic and deeply affecting, her story will move and inspire all who read it.
