Description: Against All Odds is the true story of Alan Nebauer's remarkable experiences in the 1994-95 BOC Around the World Race for single-handed sailors. Sailing as a Class II competitor aboard the 50 foot (15.2 m) Newcastle Australia, Alan Nebauer had to endure incredible difficulties in a race that lasted almost eight months and covered 27 000 nautical miles. The book recounts the author's rescue of a fellow English competitor, his experiences of being dismasted and rounding Cape Horn with a jury rig, and of the loss of his rudder north of the Falkland Islands, sailing with a steering oar to Punta del Este. Beyond this, it is a testament to Alan's extraordinary courage and determination in the face of overwhelming odds, and to his outstanding seamanship for which he deservedly won two awards.
