This title is no longer available.



The vessel is Infinity, a 120 foot, hand-built sailboat, crewed by a band of miscreants. The journey, an 8,000 mile Pacific crossing, from New Zealand to Patagonia, with a stop in Antarctica. Unlike all the other boats heading to Antarctica, Infinity is no well-financed, ice-reinforced super yacht crewed by well-paid professional sailors; rather, Infinity lives in the moment and sails on a whim, without permission or insurance of any kind. What can to be found in abundance on board is blood, sweat, enthusiasm, disdain for authority and an ample supply of alcohol all in all a mad voyage of reckless adventure just for the thrill of it.

Along the way the crew will battle a force 12 hurricane of ice, assist the radical environmental group Sea Shepherd in their fight with Japanese whalers, and tear every sail they have. At the heart of this dramatic sailing adventure is a quest for awe and a sense of wonder with the raw power of the natural world.
