Come Wind or Weather (1978). The Commanding Sea (1981).
Within five years she had completed two singlehanded crossings of the Atlantic, becoming the fastest woman ever to do so, and skippered ADC Accutrac's 11-person crew in their challenge for yachting's ultimate prize - the Whitbread Round The World Trophy.
