Fantastic movie, incredible story.

I am still at the middle of the movie but I have to share this with you all. Not a new story but an unbelievable one. The only guy rational about this was Dudley Dix, the South African NA that helped a crazy kid that was determined to circumnavigating in a ridiculous appropriated small boat.

Face to the kids determination he helped him to make his boat strong and seaworthy enough to give the him the best chances of survival and a way to accomplish his dream.

And the kid has up to his dream. Great story, a mad one, but a great one, providing nobody thinks it is safe to do that on such boat

By the way the boat is remarkably modern for a 20 year old boat and it seems to sail well. It has a keel with a bulb at the end of a relatively big and narrow foil.
