Comments Taking on the World

  • Ben Starling

    Who is this Dame Ellen MacArthur? In 2001 'she raced single-handedly non-stop around the world in the Vendée Globe when only 24 years oldcond in one of the hardest races in offshore sailing Prior to her Vendée success, she won the solo transatlantic race from the UK to the USA and went on to win the Route du Rhum from France to the Caribbean in 2002.'She departed 'from Falmouth, UK in 2004 on board the 75ft trimaran B&Q and returned 71 days, 14 hours, 18 minutes, 33 seconds later, having s [...]

    Ellen is pretty amazing. The more you read the more you realise that the sport is very like motor racing at its high levels. Ability is nothing compared to the fight to get a seat in a good car. In this case scraping together the funds to get a boat and the entrance fees to races are key. Ellen is so lucky, time and time again, her undoubted abilities as a sailor would have come to naught without the help of so many people and coincidences of money arriving at just the right moments and her own [...]


  • Stephen Dawson

    An inspiring book by an extraordinary woman. This is a book about a girl who saved her school dinner money for years in order to buy herself a boat; who sailed single-handed around Britain while a teenager; and who through sheer determination got herself into the position where she could become the youngest person to complete the Vendée Globe singlehanded around the world yacht race.At the time the book was written, the Vendée Globe was the natural climax of her life so far, and it is a shame [...]


  • Jennifer

    I doubt I would have picked up this autobiography were it not for a couple of pretty slight connections. Some years ago I made the acquaintance, in less happy circumstances, of Ellen's Aunt Thea who introduced her to sailing, and I have now moved to the area and my children attend the same school that she did. I can think of worse famous alumni!I have very little interest in or knowledge of sailing, other than second hand, for all that sailing, if you have the money, seems to have greater merit [...]


  • Jim Bowen

    I'm not altogether sure about "Taking on the World," which focuses on the early life of Ellen MacArthur, the English yachtswoman. It finishes when she's 26.The book details her life, how she fell in love with the sea, her drift into single-handed racing, and her success in the races she entered.Don't get me wrong, the book's thorough. You'll really understand her life after it's read, it's just that beyond her Vendée Globe success, I'm not sure that she had much to say beyond her scrabbling rou [...]


  • Jen

    I loved this book for the heart that Macarthur put into it, but parts of it seemed to drone on. Being a writer, I know how hard it can be to put so much of yourself onto the page for others to see, but Macarthur does it with confidence, grace, and charm. I also read this book while backpacking through Ireland and Germany, and I think that my own adventures at the time added a lot to the adventurous tone of the book. I would recommend that this book be read while traveling or while planning a tri [...]


  • Steve

    I followed this race in 2000-2001 and couldn't wait to be updated each day for 3 months as the drama unfolded.Ellen is not a professional writer but has done a nice job talking about her life, experiences and preparation to race. Her descriptions of what she went through during the race, both emotionally and physically, are mesmerizing.


  • Monique

    Wow, what a fantastic book! Reading the book, you're with her on Kingfisher sailing the Vendee Globe, advancing wave upon wave and feeling her emotions.Ellen is really magnificent. She's such a brave woman! She makes her dream come true and that's why I respect her so much. She's a true hero to me.


  • Tarquilla

    Written in a heart warming way which makes you actually feel for Dame Ellen as a real human being. She describes things well from places to people to feelings. A fascinating book and an amazing story.


  • Monica

    I love her single-minded obsession. I had been a bit reluctant to read this book at first because, while I'm interested in sailing, I'm not that interested in racing. Still, my boyfriend insisted so I gave it a shot. I almost gave this book 5 stars, but then got a bit bored at times.


  • Cupcakemummy

    my dad bought me this book when I started showing an interest in following him down the skipper path. What an inspiration.


  • Jenny

    As an enthusiastic but sometimes wussy sailor, I was continually amazed by Ellen's courage and determination. An amazing story and fascinating read.


  • Tracy Chisholm

    What an inspirational young woman. This is a phenomenal read, she takes you along on her journey where you experience all her Highs and lows. Highly recommend this and her other books too.


  • Vicki

    Probably needed to understand more about sailing but she is an incredible women.


  • Mary

    Gets really rambling and disjointed at times. The best part of the book is hearing what the author did from her perspective.


  • Sally Andreou

    Every teenager should read this book as it is truly inspiring. Ellen showed that anything is possible with a positive mind.


  • Astrid

    I really enjoyed reading this, and all about her introductions into sailing and racing. Very good all the way through, and it made me a bit more interested in the Vendee Globe boards at school.
