I learned about Moitessier when reading Sir. Robin Knox Johnstons book from the golden globe race. I guess the idea of a guy who was going to win the first non stop solo round the world race but was going to keep going and forget about the race, sparked my interest. I really enjoyed The Long Way.
If that race interests you, there's another great book about Donald Crowhurst, I wont give the whole story away but he was apparently winning the race accoriding to radio transmissions, but then he disappeared. His trimaran was found floating in the atlantic without him...
