A story of the 1968/69 around-the-world race dubbed the ""Golden Globe"". Its nine participants setting sail in small and ill-equipped boats, determined to do the impossible; sail a non-stop circumnavigation of the earth. Only one would finish achieving fame, wealth and glory, the others; despair, madness and death. These were intrepid men, no satellite navigation, no computers, no cell phone or fax line connecting them to the world beyond, or to possible rescuers. They were survivors relying on wit and ingenuity, navigating by sextant, sun and the stars, making those decisions whose consequences could mean life or death. Another remarkable story of men versus the sea. B/W photos.
