Alone in a capsized sailboat in the middle of the Southern Ocean, battered by incessant storm waves, frostbitten and exhausted, Tony Bullimore must face the grim reality of his situation.

Read about the sailors who engage in the one of the most grueling sporting events known to man: Round-the-world single-handed sailboat racing. Four months alone, much of it spent in the most isolated and dangerous place on earth - the Southern Ocean. Five very different and fascinating stories.

Written in clear, simple French, richly illustrated with photos, illustrations and maps, the book is made up of five short stories all based on true events.
