Race to Freedom: A Tale of an Impossible Around the World Journey
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThis first novel by Russian-born sailor and yacht designer Vladislav Murnikov chronicles the story of the first and only Soviet yacht (Fazisi) ever to compete in a Whitbread Round the World Race. Race to Freedom traces the original concept of Vlad's dream through the trials and tribulations that led to the successful campaign of the maxi-boat named Fazisi. She became the first private sports initiative in the slowly collapsing Soviet Union and truly a model of free enterprise at work that was inspirational for all involved. "Race to Freedom" has all the drama of an epic sailing adventure in the most treacherous waters on Earth, from the tragedy resulting in the loss of a co-skipper and a potentially mutinous crew, to the sheer elation of surfing the Southern Ocean waves in an 83-foot high-performance sailboat.
