The Perfect Storm

Jim Dobie 320x240 - Copy

During 2009-10 I was skipper of Uniquely Singapore in the Round the World Clipper yacht race. I encountered a storm that was so brutal and strong it seemed to want to get the best of our yacht. What in fact happened was it brought out the best in all of us.

Find out how I led my crew through a disastrous knock-down and how we survived to tell the tale.
