Sail-World.com : Spanish Castle to White Night now available as an eBook

Spanish Castle to White Night now available as an eBook

Mark Chisnell's account of the 2008-09 Volvo Ocean Race, Spanish Castle to White Night, is now available in an eBook text only version.

The Volvo Ocean Race 2008-09 ran for 37,000 miles through ten stages across the world's seas and oceans. It was raced in the planet's fastest and most demanding monohull, the Volvo Open 70, capable of sustaining speeds well over 30 knots. The boat and the course make this the most exacting of all crewed sail boat races, a microscopic examination of the qualities of sailing skill, seamanship, stamina and strategy for the 11 men aboard each yacht.

Spanish Castle to White Night charts the story of some of the 88 men that left Alicante in October 2008 to win that race. It follows them through the next nine months as they endured and enjoyed every possible emotion, their human story intertwined with the raw elements of nature and the extraordinary technology on which their success and sometimes even their survival depended.

This is the story of the Volvo Ocean Race 2008-09, ripping and roaring through the seven seas - from Spain, past Africa and onto Asia, round the Americas and back to Europe. It's a story of endurance, deprivation and adventure, a story of winners and losers, those who made it and those who didn't.

Book available from the Volvo Ocean Race website click here in English and Spanish as a coffee table edition.
