The Sydney To Hobart Yacht Race by Rob Mundle

Lee and Vic weren’t the only ones to love The Sydney To Hobart Yacht Race by Rob Mundle… Here is a book review from the QBD crew:

One evening in May 1945, a small group of Sydney sailing enthusiasts decided that their planned post-Christmas cruise south to Hobart would be more enjoyable if they made it a race. And so began the story of the contest that is now ranked among the world’s premier offshore racing events – a race that demands both immense physical and mental endurance of the individual sailor along with the coordinated effort of a close-knit team. It’s a challenge where one mistake can lead to defeat, while success can deliver national and international acclaim.

Rob Mundle once again delivers a riveting historical yarn, this time about the other race that stops the nation.
