World-famous software billionaire Rex Wyman is determined to win the world's longest and most challenging yacht race, from San Francisco to Japan through some of the roughest seas in the world.

Force 12 combines suspense, adventure, high technology gone awry, and a good old-fashioned sea story at its most exciting.
