9984 DURAN DURAN Simon Le Bon & Neil Cheston - Drum Original 1986 Book.. GIFT IDEA
Very rare, 128 page glossy book, which charts the story in well written text and stunning photos of SLBs near fatal yachting days with Drum.
In the 1985 Fastnet Race, DRUM suddenly lost her keel in gale force winds and capsized. Simon Le Bon (of Duran Duran) and managers Paul and Michael Berrow escaped near death. Six crew members including Le Bon were trapped inside. The revolutionary 77' Maxi yacht was then completely re-fitted in record time, making the start of the Whitbread Round The World Race with just two days to spare. Against these incredible odds she went on to take 3rd place out of 15 entires.
This book is pre-owned and in excellent condition, the binding is tight, the pages are clean, there is no spine damage or missing pages and the cover has only very minimal wear.
