A documentary about a British engineer with little boating experience who, in the summer of ’68, decided to risk everything and become the first person to sail around the world. By himself. Without stopping. Against eight other sailors with much more experience.
It’s such an extraordinary story and one that you’ve probably never heard of, so long as you aren’t British or really into sailing. Had me glued to the screen right from the setup and I’d be awfully surprised if you or anyone else responded differently. It really is quite the tale.
It’s got a 96% on Rotten Tomatoes.
