Into the Storm

The Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is among the most demanding sailing competitions in the world highlighted by 1998 race where Storm force conditions tool their toll: six sailors perished and another 55 were saved in what became the largest search and rescue operation in Australia’s history. One of the smallest boats in the fleet, AFR Midnight Rambler skippered by Ed Psaltis and his crew, made the daring decision to head directly into its path, and not only finished but took overall victory, beating bigger better-equipped yachts that attempted to maneuver around the storm. Their triumph, perhaps evens their survival, owes itself to an extraordinary level of teamwork: an alchemy of cooperation, trust, planning, and execution. Into the Storm chronicles their nearly four-day ordeal and draws parallels to the world of business, revealing 10 critical strategies for teamwork at the edge.
