The dramatic rescue of Tony Bullimore in January 1997 was the exhilarating climax to one of the most remarkable survival stories of modern times. When Bullimore's yacht Exide Challenger capsized in the icy vastness of the Southern Ocean, he had been at sea for two months, competing in the Vendée Globe around-the-world race. Sheltering in a tiny air pocket in the upturned hull, some 2,500 kilometers from the southwest coast of Australia, he now prepared for his loneliest challenge. Saved takes us deep into the trauma of Tony Bullimore¹s ordeal as he unfolds the events of his own past against the dramatic events that, hour by hour for nearly five days, were speeding him ever closer to his fate. Gripping and inspiring, Saved is the story of a true survivor.

Excellent book but why is he insistent on NOT repeating what he said soon after his rescue.
He said I knew I was going to be OK because I fell asleep and had a dream where I was transported through a tunnel to a room where people were sharing a meal and the person in the middle smiled at him and when he awoke he new he was going to be rescued.
These words came out of his own mouth but was soon quashed by spin doctors or whoever decided that they were best buried.
I wonder if those recordings have been wiped of all records.
