Fastnet, Force 10 by John Rousmaniere

Written shortly after the tragedy, this is a very 1970s book. The author describes himself unapologetically as a “WASP”, for example, which would probably not fly these days.

It’s long on descriptions but short on analysis. The descriptions however are pretty horrifying. If you ever feel like taking up ocean racing maybe read this first.
