Condition: Fine/Fine, Not Price Clipped


London: Little, Brown and Company, 1997. Light fading to jacket spine, signed and inscribed to the title page. The dramatic rescue of Tony Bullimore on 9th January 1997 was the exhilarating cilmax to one of the greatest survival stories of modern times. When Bullimore's yacht Exide Challenger capsized amid the icy vastness of the southern Ocean, he had been at sea for two months, competing in the Vendee Globe round-the-world race. Sheltering in a tiny air pocket in the upturned hull, 2500 kilometres from the south-west coast of Australia, he now prepared for his loneliest challenge. But as he began to look back over his life, Canberra marine rescue officers received the distress signal that triggered the rescue mission. The moment chief petty officer Pete Wicker's hammer-blows on the yacht's hull received a response, groundless optimism became glorious reality. No one had ever been rescued so deep within the Southern Ocean.. Signed and inscribed. First Edition/First Printing. Hard Cover. Fine/Fine, Not Price Clipped. Illus. by Illustrated with Photographs.
