Description: The subculture of sailing thrives on adrenaline, with sailors vying to see just how far they can push their boats and crew. Today’s competitors have an insatiable desire to smash records and make history, as they conquer treacherous waters and near-impossible weather conditions. And maritime marathons, in which sailors race to circumnavigate the globe, are drawing more and more fearless competitors. This stunning book offers a look at sailing’s most extreme feats—including The America’s Cup, the Vendée Globe, the Sydney-Hobart, and the Ostar—with spectacular color photographs capturing the true spirit of the sport. Extreme Sail also features an engaging text, commentary from those who have competed in extreme events, and a directory of all the races, events, and competitions featured in the book
