The stormy seas and gale force winds around Tasmania provide a challenge for any boat. What, then, possessed three young women to try to sea kayak around the 850 mile Australian island? This warts-and-all documentary gives a real insight into the highs and lows of a challenging expedition. You feel like you are there in the kayak as the girls battle through three-storey high swells on the exposed south west coast and heave their 100 kilogram kayaks over drying-out sandbanks. They resort to 4 a.m. starts to try to beat the constant headwinds but still they endure the heartache of turning back against a gale.
