Amazing story of determination & fortitude. Overcame more obstacles in South African bureaucracy than their disabilities to sail across the Atlantic in a boat they built.

If you ever say, -I'm not young enough, or healthy enough, or in-shape enough, or whatever enough-, to go sailing, read this book.
