When James Cracknell and Ben Fogle decided to compete in the Atlantic Rowing Race, they thought they knew what awaited them: nearly three thousand miles of empty ocean, stormy weather and colossal physical stress.

But their epic journey would become at times, a living hell that tested the strength of every fibre of their being. Yet, forty seven days later, James and Ben were the first pair to cross the finishing line – overtaking one of the four-man teams in the process – becoming the first British pair ever to win the race. They pushed themselves physically, psychologically and emotionally to the limit. They survived without water rations for two days, lost the few clothes they had in a freak wave, capsized, hallucinated, wept, fought, played games, grew beards, nursed blisters and rowed 2,930 miles.

The Crossing is the extraordinarily honest account of James Cracknell and Ben Fogle's epic race, one that forced both men to face the truth about themselves and each other.
