Three paralyzed men take up one of sailing’s most grueling challenges…

— a 750 mile race to Alaska through some of the most treacherous and remote waters on the planet. With no motors allowed and many miles from any help, the competition can be too dangerous for the world’s most fearless sailors. This team is out to prove they have what it takes to finish. A film by Great Big Films.


A film by Eric & Susan Hiscock
Running time: 91 minutes

In the late 1950’s, very few “middle class” sailors had taken small sailing craft on long voyages. British Sailors, Eric & Susan Hiscock became pioneers in making long trans-oceanic passages in a small sailboat to what was then quite remote destinations. Their sailing adventures paved the way for future generations of cruising sailors who would follow in their wake, making blue water passage-making the more common experience it has become today.
