Call Me Ted, from Richard Owen

September 25, 2013 |

 One of the most fascinating bits of Ted Turner's autobiography is when he discusses his near win at either Cowes Week or Fastnet. It was the year of a huge storm and record tragic deaths.

Turner writes that, when they hit the center of the storm, he realized they had likely a one third probability of death.

He acknowledged this to himself but quickly made peace and then his primary focus remained throughout on positioning the boat for a win.

That sums him up well.
