Covering 32,700 nautical miles over ten months in an open yacht, spanning four oceans and stopping at ten ports on five continents, the Volvo Ocean Race is the world's premier ocean sailing event. Fighting Finish takes us on this oceangoing adventure with complete coverage of the 2001-2002 event, from its start in Southampton, England, in September 2001, to the final celebrations in Kiel, Germany, in June 2002. All of the action from every leg of the race is presented here in full detail, including the victorious finish of the German boat illbruck before thousands of spectators as it returned home the ultimate winner of the epic sailing race. In addition, Fighting Finish also gives a detailed look at the glorious history of the race, originally known as the Whitbread, which began as a challenge over a pint in a pub and evolved into the world's most celebrated ocean race, changing the sport of ocean racing forever.
