The Naked Rower by Rob Hamill How Two Kiwis Took on the Atlantic-and Won!

THE NAKED ROWER is the story of one man and his dream. The man was New Zealander Rob Hamill and the dream was to win the world's first trans -Atlantic rowing race. It was, they told him, the impossible dream. He had no money, no rowing partner, not knowledge of the boat building and - while he was a world-class sculler - he had never rowed at sea. Worse still, when he finally did try blue-water rowing, he became chronically seasick.

THE NAKED ROWER is a swashbuckling story of high adventure, friendship placed under unbearable strain, terrible tragedy, and the ultimate triumph of the human spirit.

    Book Terminology

    Tanning - age tanning or browning/yellowing occurs over time on the pages of books,  tanning tends to start on the outside of the pages and progresses inward over time, often creating a brownish or yellowish border around the page edges.
    Foxed / Foxing - age-related brown or brown-yellowish spotting of the paper caused by a chemical reaction over time.
    Sunned - damage done to a book cover or dust jacket caused by exposure to direct sunlight.
    Closed Tear - indicates a torn page in which no material has been lost. A closed tear can be pressed back into place or sometimes fixed with archival repair tape.
    Ex-library – the book was once owned by, and circulated in, a public library.  This book could well be in any of the above general categories but more often than not has been well used.  May have library stickers, stamps, or markings.
