Re^4: What to read on the Vendee Globe Round the world race

I like the P. G. Wodehouse suggestion. If the sailor ever gets a time to relax, Simon Winchester has written two fairly recent books which are dense with a huge variety of interesting information about the two biggest oceans - "Atlantic" and "Pacific" - and he's an entertaining writer.

And a "Teach Yourself to Play [some relatively small, water-proof musical instrument]" as well as some music to have a go at. Old Bach would be a bit of a stretch.
