Clare Francis - sea bird Written and narrated by FRANK PAGE
Sail across the Atlantic with CLARE FRANCIS in this year's Observer Single-handed Yacht Race
Clare carried specially-developed robot cameras during the voyage and filmed her own peaks of achievement and moments of despair during the 29-day crossing. Her diary of events vividly conveys the exhilaration, the fear and the loneliness of racing under sail -single-handed across 3,000 miles of unfriendly ocean.
