Team Spirit : Life and Leadership on One of the World's Toughest Yacht Races Paperback
by Brendan Hall
The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is the ultimate long distance challenge - a 35,000-mile circumnavigation of the globe, contested by amateur crews in identical racing yachts.
The 2010 winner was 28-year-old Brendan Hall and his crew in Spirit of Australia.
Although Brendan was the youngest and least experienced skipper in the race, the win was no accident - it was the culmination of years of training, skilled navigation and a leadership style way beyond his years.
His skills were soon put to the test - in the middle of a North Pacific hurricane, Brendan went to the rescue of a competing yacht and skippered both boats across one of the most feared oceans in the world.
This brutally honest, no-holds-barred account is revealing and instructive, with valuable lessons in leadership and management - as well as never giving up.
Thrown in quite literally at the deep end, he is pushed to the limit, and learns lessons you can only learn the hard way.
