The iconic Sydney to Hobart Race, a 723-mile deepwater challenge-often called the "Everest" of offshore ocean racing-is considered one of the toughest in the world. Unpredictable weather and seas make each race demanding, but in 1998, an unexpected "weather bomb" hit the fleet, creating 80-foot waves and 100-mile-per-hour winds.

Into the Storm recounts the story of the Ramblers' stunning victory, and the teamwork that made it possible-revealing powerful lessons for success in today's demanding business environment.
