In August of 1979, Nick Ward began the 600-mile course of the Uk's Fastnet Race with perfect weather. Within forty-eight hours, the deadliest storm in the history of modern sailing came blasting through the Irish Sea. By the time it passed, it had thrown one of the world's most prestigious races into bedlam and taken the lives of fifteen sailors. Ward's boat, Grimalkin, was capsized again and again, and the skipper lost overboard; after hours of struggle, three of the crew fled the boat for the life raft. Nick and his crewmate Gerry, both injured, unconscious, and presumed dead, were abandoned on the beleaguered yacht. Gerry died a few hours later, and Nick was left alone to face down a storm that has become legendary among sailors and racing fans alike.
