Product Description: It has been called the toughest yacht race ever--28,000 miles around the globe against the prevailing winds and currents. Yet the British Steel Challenge of ten identical yachts, devised by Chay Blyth, was three times over-subscribed by amateur crews eager to test themselves against the elements. n nVivien Cherry was the only female skipper in the race, and Woman of Steel tells of the responsibilities, the frustrations, the isolation and the exhilaration of racing the yacht Coopers & Lybrand for nine months around the world with an inexperienced crew, coaching, cajoling and driving them every mile of the way. Half nanny, half slavedriver, Vivien discovered the true loneliness of command. This is the gripping account of how she overcame the odds on a voyage which began with doubts, but ended with a fanfare.
