A wise decision

In January 1997, Tony Bullimore was taking part in the Vendee Globe yacht race. The race begins and ends in France, and goes all the way around the world. The sailors are alone in their yachts. It is a hard race because the yachts must not stop. It is also very dangerous. The race goes through some of the worst seas in the world, thousands of kilometres from land.


A wise decision

On 5 January, Tony sailed into very bad weather 1,500 kilometres south of Perth, Australia. There were winds of 90 kilometres per hour, and waves 15 metres high. Tony’s 18-metre yacht, the Exide Challenger, capsized. It was dark and cold inside the yacht. There was only enough air for a few days, and Tony had only a small piece of chocolate to eat. But Tony was a very good sailor. He knew that if he went outside the yacht, he would die. He decided to wait inside the yacht.


A wise decision

Luckily for Tony, the Australian Navy sent many planes and ships to fine him. They looked for almost five days, but could not find him. Then on 9 January, sailors, on one of the ships, the HMAS Adelaide, saw the Exide Challenger. It was upside down. They didn’t know if Tony was inside, and they didn’t know if he was alive. The sailors from the HMAS Adelaide knocked on the hull of the Exide Challenger. They were very happy when Tony knocked back!


A wise decision

And what do you think Tony did after he was found? He asked for a cup of tea!
