But he wanted just that little bit extra, and skipper Alan Priddy was happy to oblige - right up to the point where he asked Clive to join the crew!Memoirs of a Record-Breaker takes five full-length features originally written for magazines and newspapers.

They cover pivotal moments in the life of Spirit of Cardiff, from the early attempts at setting the first ever powerboat record for circumnavigating the British Isles (it took three goes), to the 2001 New York to Lizard Point transatlantic (the record for which has never been challenged), the epic voyage around the world in 2002, and the final iceberg-dodging transatlantic in 2003 (which isnt covered in Clives acclaimed book Confronting Poseidon).This compact Kindle volume takes you on a bone-crunching ride through stormy seas in the pursuit of official UIM powerboating world records - and in three years, Spirit of Cardiff amassed more of those than any other boat in history!
