In finishing yachting's toughest race, the Vendee Globe, Ellen MacArthur became the youngest person ever to complete the race and the fastest woman ever to circumnavigate the globe. The scenes that greeted her arrival were extraordinary; hundreds of thousands of people lined the waterfront in France to cheer La Petite Anglaise. This is her story so far. Dramatic and and deeply affecting, it will move and inspire all who read it.
