While still a boy, Francis Chichester opted for life in the fast lane. He left school for a wider education and found it whether flying solo from London to Sydney, hazarding a seaplane journey from Australia to Japan, racing typhoons off the coast of China or battling mountainous seas in the Atlantic. He sought great challenges and met them with courage and determination.
THE LONELY SEA AND THE SKY, written shortly after he won the first Observer Single-Handed Transatlantic Race (OSTAR), is the story of his life. It is remarkable not only for adventure, but for the message it leaves us with -- that no matter the odds, there is always scope for what Herbert Hoover called "the uncommon man."
