RB08 book finally for sale!

I'm proud to announce that my book on last year's Round Britain powerboat race is finally finished and available for sale. It's called "Chasing The Horizon- one man's account of the 2008 Round Britain Powerboat Race", and, as the title suggests, it's not intended to be a dry, stuffy blow-by-blow report on the race.
Instead it's the story of how I covered the event for MotorBoat & Yachting magazine- an assignment that lurched from one near-catastrophe to another. In the end I was lucky enough to race on board with five different teams, including the phenomenal Goldfish 36 that came second overall.
If you'd like to know more, check out my website: www.chasingthehorizon.co.uk, or go to amazon.co.uk to order a copy (or two!).
I hope you'll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed taking part in the race!
Derek
