English title: The Atlantic Solo
6,5 meter-long sailboat
8.000 kilometres of ocean’s open space
terrifying and wonderful
at the same time
Šime has decided to start living his dream. His dream was to sail over Atlantic, from France to Brazil (journey about 8000 kilometers long), on a 6.5 meter-long boat, using sails exclusively, without any communication with the land. Cameras on the boat were the only witnesses of 27 days of Šime’s solitude far away in the sea.
