Sir Peter Blake
Publisher:Penguin Books Ltd
Sir Peter Blake was perhaps the greatest competitive yachtsman of all time ? the man who seized the America's Cup and won the Whitbread. In his later years he turned away from international competition and used the yacht Seamaster to draw attention to the threats to the world's environment. It was in pursuit of this cause that Blake was tragically murdered in 2001 at the mouth of the Amazon while defending Seamaster from pirates. In this first ever biography, close friend and colleague Alan Sefton traces Blake's extraordinary life. From the small boy crazy about the sea, to the rigours of ocean racing and the America's Cup triumphs, to the decision to devote his life to saving the world's oceans - and to his sad but brave end on the Amazon. Blake lived life to the limit. An Amazing Life offers both gripping adventure and inspiration to sailors and non-sailors alike.
