Life and Leadership on one of the world’s toughest yacht races

A compelling story of a race on the edge, a young leader’s crash-course in leadership under gruelling pressure, and a determined journey to triumph against the odds.

A valuable resource for skippers and business leaders alike.

The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is the ultimate long-distance challenge – a 40,000-mile circumnavigation of the globe, contested by amateur crews in identical racing yachts – and the winners are those who keep their focus the longest.

Published by Bloomsbury in 2012, Team Spirit has become a valuable resource for skippers and business leaders alike and has been featured in Economia, The Sunday Times and numerous yachting publications.

Shortlisted for the Mountbatten Book Award.

30,000 copies sold worldwide and featured in BBC, Sunday Times, Dialogue, Ecomonia, Reconteur, Yachting World, Business Uncovered.

Praise for Team Spirit

A must read

All skippers, no matter how humble their aspirations, should read Team Spirit; so should every captain of industry. I challenge anyone placed in authority over their fellows to search their hearts and say they have picked up nothing from this book.

Fascinating insight

A really great read for anyone interested in team performance at the very highest level, coupled with a fascinating insight into human endeavor in a pressure cooker environment.

Raw, gripping & brutally honest

Raw, gripping and brutally honest, Hall reveals how he learned as much from his mistakes as successes.
