Storyline

On January 11, 2007, Andrew McAuley set out on his quest to become the first person to kayak from Australia to New Zealand across one of the wildest and loneliest stretches of ocean on Earth. On February 9, New Zealand maritime authorities received his distress call. Having survived a harrowing and torturous month at sea, conquering monstrous swells and terrifying storms, McAuley lost his life only a day from completing his journey. His body was never recovered, but the camera tapes from his kayak were and they form the basis of this moving and questioning portrait of a complex man, his family, his supporters and his attempt to conquer the ferocious Tasman Sea.

Amazing
4 June 2013 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

I loved this documentary. It is one of the most emotional and interesting documentaries I've ever seen.

His final radio message is haunting and incredibly sad. The descriptions given as to what kind of conditions he faced on his attempt were interesting and moving, and helped give you an added respect for him, knowing that he survived such terrifying weather, only to be taken out by a set of rogue waves that came out of nowhere when he was in seeing- distance of his goal.

The camera footage is also fascinating. The breakdowns he has, and him describing how bad it was when he had to bail out the canoe by hand were captivating.

I really enjoyed this, and have watched it more than once since.
