Sir Peter Blake

an amazing life

di Sefton Alan

448 pagine ISBN: 978157409209
Anno di pubblicazione: 2005

Sir Peter Blake was the outstanding sailor-adventurer of his time. In a 30-year sailing career, he won every significant blue-water race on the planet, including the America's Cup and the Whitbread Round the World Race, and slashed the record for the fastest non-stop circumnavigation of the world under sail. Knighted for his achievements and accorded celebrity status in many countries, Sir Peter turned away from competitive sailing in the last years of his life to pursue a passion to help protect the environment that he had enjoyed so much. Alan Sefton traces Blake's extraordinary life, from the rigors of ocean racing around the world, to the high drama of the America's Cup triumphs, where the egos of the world's greatest sailors clash. Sefton describes those controversial years in vivid detail. Blake made the decision to devote his life to saving the world's oceans, using Seamaster as his classroom. Finally, defending his ship and crew, he was tragically murdered by pirates on the Amazon River.
