In doing so Pete scuppered his own chances in the race but was awarded the Legion dHonneur by Frances president and made a friend for life in Dinelli.

Close to the Wind is his own story of the race and its dramas, his revolutionary boat, Aqua Quorum, his thoughts and emotions during four months of solitude at sea, the extraordinary surgery that he had to perform on his own elbow and the aftermath of the rescue in the Southern Ocean.
