On 5 June 1988, Kay Cottee fulfilled her childhood dream - to become the first woman in history to complete a solo, nonstop and unassisted sailing voyage around the world. Now, a decade on, Kay candidly fills in the details of her life since that historic achievement, painting an inspiring portrait of one of Australia's greatest women.
Kay's book has been written to answer many of the questions she is constantly asked as she criss-crosses Australia and the world to tell of her remarkable voyage. She recounts the funny, exciting and sad stories that come with life in the public eye, and her profound love for the country that gave her the chance to reach for the stars, and of her passions away from the water - painting and sculpting - and the joys of marriage and motherhood.
