As former editor of Boating New Zealand and independent journalist over 30 years, Rebecca Hayter has written about New Zealand sailing: its technical strategies, famous yachts, extraordinary personalities, and the disasters and exhilaration of the America’s Cup. Rick Dodson thought he was invincible as a professional sailor, but after 1997 he was sailing with a secret. When it finally took effect, he campaigned for the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games in a race against his own disease. 'Storm Ahead' tells the story of that journey through Rick's eyes, but also from the perspective of some of the world's top sailors, who sailed with and against Rick.
