'Hero at sea, the adventurous life of Mark Slats'

2018 December 12th | Golden Globe Race

The title of Mark’s book ‘Held op zee, het avontuurlijke leven van Mark Slats’ is Dutch for ‘Hero at sea, the adventurous life of Mark Slats’. Journalist Micha Jacobs is currently writing Mark’s adventurous life story. About smashing the worldrecord in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, living in Australia, his get-together with Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, but most of all about his preparation for and adventures during the Golden Globe Race 2018. ‘Sailing like it’s 1968’.

The book includes exclusive diary written at sea. Micha Jacobs: “I don’t use the word biography on purpose, because I believe that you can’t write a complete and definite biography while someone is still alive. What I’m writing now is a portrait about his life full of adventure which is beyond every imagination.”

The book will be published (in Dutch first) at Mark’s return to the Netherlands (approximately spring 2019)
