It was like a challenge down; sailing around the world alone and non-stop.No one had ever done that, we didn’t know if it could be done.In 1968, nine men – six English, two French and one Italian – began to try, a race born of the coincidence of their calendarWe don’t even know how the sailThey had more in common with Captain Cook or Ferdinand Magellan than with the high-tech, extreme sailors of today, barely forty years laterIt was not the sea or the weather that determined the nature of their journeys, but the men they were, and they were as different from each other as Scott Amundsen wasOnly one of the nine crossed the finish line after ten months at seaThe rest met despair, sublimity, madness and even death.
