"Lone Wolf - How Emirates Team New Zealand Stunned the World" has sold out of copies available directly from the publisher.

Copies are still available through some major retail outlets - Whitcoulls Online, Paperplus Online and The Warehouse in New Zealand and some independent booksellers. The cut-off for online delivery before Christmas is likely to be December 20th.

The book covering Team New Zealand's recovery from the 2003 America's Cup campaign, when they became the first Defender to withdraw from two races to being the Challenger in 2007 and 2013 and the win in 2017, may still be available from international online sources including Mighty Ape

Booksellers will not be able to re-order additional copies once their current stock runs out. Obviously the title will still be available from outlets who still have pre-ordered stock.

To check if one of the suppliers has stock click on the links above or any one of the banner ads which are now linked to the three major retailers who purchased advance copies. Or Google and check for online sellers.

Lone Wolf is printed on over 200 pages of high quality stock with about 140 full-colour images covering the period 2003-2017, with a focus on the Bermuda campaign. As the book is a piece of photo journalism, with the images carrying the story the online text-only copy does not resemble the print copy other than the raw text.

Lone Wolf has consistently placed in the top five non-fiction titles since its launch on October 19, and is expected to sell out completely before Christmas. It will be the largest selling sports book in New Zealand for 2017 despite having been on the market for just two months.

Currently there are no plans for a reprint.
