A very cool documentary about Alex Rust, a charismatic 25 yr old kid from Indiana US who trades the life of a young stock trader for that of derelict sailboat captain.
With no previous experience, he and his bearded pals dare to circumnavigate the globe proving to us all that even if your boat leaks (a bit) and you are slightly lacking in experience you can get on the water and go sailing.
This guy is crazy, but he is also a hero. No doubt about it, he defiantly threw off the dock lines and sailed into the sunset!
Yes I know I said I was only leaving Tassie for a few weeks to visit Emilie’s family in France, but this job was too irresistible.
