A Race Too FarJournalist and BBC news reader Chris Eakin is the author of A Race Too Far - the untold story behind one of the greatest adventures of modern times. Nine men raced to be the first to sail round the world single-handed. Only one succeeded. For 40 years, the families who were hit by tragedy have hidden from public curiosity. Now, Chris Eakin has tracked down all the survivors of this epic story. A Race Too Far brings alive the drama of the adventure and, for the first time, its full human cost.
