Product description

Race Against Time, by Ellen MacArthur. Signed copy. First Edition, first printing. Published by Michael Joseph, 2005. Just after 10.00 on the night of February 7th 2004, Ellen MacArthur crossed an imaginary line in the sea off Brittany to become the fastest person ever to sail solo round the world. Her effort captured the world's imagination and the scenes that greeted her return to Falmouth were euphoric. She had become, some claimed, the finest sailor her country had ever produced. Drawing on logs, emails, sound and video diaries, this beautifully designed, fully illustrated book captures the drama, excitement, danger, joy and tears of a truly extraordinary achievement - in Ellen's own words.

Signed 'go for it! Ellen' on a sticker labelled 'Renault' pasted into the half-title page - see photo. Binding tight, pages clean. Very collectable.
