About the event
Rick Dodson scaled the heights of international sailing, including as strategist on the team that won and defended the America's Cup, but at the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games he faced his toughest competition, his debilitating disease.
Written by Rebecca Hayter, including interviews with Rick Dodson, Sir Russell Coutts, Tom Schnackenberg, Joey Allen and paralympians Chris Sharp and Andrew May, Storms Ahead is an honest account of sporting challenges as an able-bodied and disabled athlete.
