A Race Too Far

By Chris Eakin

Published by Ebury Press (2009)

If proof were needed that some stories never die, this third tome about the doomed Golden Globe Non-Stop Round the World Race is it.

All good reporters find a new angle and Eakin, a former newspaper and BBC TV journalist, is no exception. Eakin, a serious yachtsman himself, provides in-depth interviews with Clare Crowhurst and Eve, the widow of Lieutenant-Commander, Nigel Tetley, R.N., who had not spoken previously.

When we were on the road as journalists, I was always slightly envious that Eakin had managed to talk to Clare. It was only later he told me that he was quick to nab the big names after I’d interviewed Commander Bill King for Yachting Monthly!
