Four men set sail in a 40-foot trimaran from New Zealand for the Tonga Islands in June 1989. Hit by a storm wave, they capsize and drift for 119 days - the longest anyone has survived in an upturned boat - until they crash ashore on the Barrier Island. The men face all the practical hardships familiar to survival stories, but this is not merely another survival story. The real fascination lies in the account of the inter-relationships of the crew. In this fiercely macho environment, fear, insecurity, egotism, selfishness and treachery are constants. But they also find resources and strengths they never knew they had and almost learn to co-habit in their isolated world. Jim Nalepka, one of the four survivors, had never been to sea before. He was the "diplomat" amongst them and the best of the four to re-tell the story. Steve Callahan is a sailing journalist and the co-author of "Adrift", a chronicle of his own experience of being lost at sea for 76 days.
