FASTNET RACE 1979

40 years ago this week since the Fastnet Race disaster.

There was a Doc on one on it on RTE Radio 1 last Saturday.
I expect it should be available on the player.

Nationwide on RTE 1 television this evening - 14.08.19 - is advertised as having an item on the subject. 19:00 I think.

For those who like forensics there is a copy of the "official" RORC & RYA report on the issue available on line.

There are a few good books on this one also - "Left for Dead" is one I've read, an easy, short-enough read. Anyone else recommend any others?

Fastnet Force 10 is another good one

And if you're in the market for books on that sort of theme (with apologies for going slightly off topic), this is a fantastic read about the first solo nom stop race around the world, the one in which Donald Crowhurst disappeared.
