Eleven months of adventure sailing from Alaska to French Polynesia, the story of a remarkable family that made the sea their home…

Philippe Poupon, Géraldine Danon and their four children, aged two, three, ten, and thirteen when their voyage began, traverse the globe from north to south. Starting in France, they sail the Fleur Australe through the northwest passage and down the coast of Alaska to the waters of French Polynesia. Géraldine’s daily log records this second leg of their great adventure with sensitivity and wit: life on board, its inconveniences – confinement, seasickness, and isolation, and its rewards – the wonders and lessons of discovery.
