Sea Gypsies: The Far Side of the World

Apr 5, 2018 @ 7:00 pm  —  Apr 5, 2018 @ 10:00pm

A nautical documentary about a rambunctious crew of wanderers who sail through some of the most challenging waters on the planet, that will move and inspire you in a panoply of ways.
– National Geographic Adventure

In early Feb 2014, during the iciest year on record in the Southern Ocean, Infinity and her crew of 16 left New Zealand on an 8,000 mile Pacific crossing to Patagonia, with a stop in Antarctica. This expedition was undertaken with a non-ice-reinforced gypsy boat built by hand in the 1970’s, crewed by a band of wandering miscreants, with no permits or insurance and an almost non-existent budget. Along the way, they battled a hurricane of ice in the Ross Sea, struggled with compounding mechanical and flooding problems, undertook a mission with the radical environmental group Sea Shepherd, tore every sail they had, and unwittingly went further south than any sailing vessel in 2014. This is a story about sailing, the camaraderie of a shared struggle, and the raw awe-inspiring power of the natural world.

Presented in affiliation with Piscataqua Sailing Association.
