A film by Eric & Susan Hiscock
Interactive DVD
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.
