From the WGBH Forum Network: "In the winter of 2003, Adam Nicholson embarked on the sea voyage of his wildest imaginings. In the company of George Fairhurst, an experienced skipper with half a million sea miles under his belt, Nicholson navigated the often unforgiving coastal waters of western Ireland and Scotland, visiting the outer reaches of the British Isles. The months-long expedition on a 42-foot ketch tested their mettle, both as sailors and as men, as they faced fierce weather, fickle currents, and their own resolution and limitations."
