In 1962, seventeen men tried to sail from Tonga to New Zealand on a 51 foot sailboat named Tuaikaepau. A fateful storm blew them off course and into the Minerva Reef where they were shipwrecked and marooned in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean. An epic account of their fight for survival that lasted 101 days.
