In 1989 the trimaran Rose Noelle set sail from New Zealand to Tonga with a four man crew on board. After a freak wave capsizes the boat and turns it upside down the men had to survive for 119 days before reaching the Great Barrier Reef. 'Stranded' tells a true story of courage and survival in some of the most hostile seas on the planet.
This true account of 4 men's 119 day struggle for survival at sea on a capsized catamaran is partly about clashing and extreme personalities and partly about survival. There is some background stuff about the families waiting for their return which helps the drama. Interesting but not gripping unless you are an avid sailor.
