The following five videos are excerpted from the five hour Offshore Voyaging DVD series. Introduction to the South Pacific aboard the 78 foot ketch Beowulf is first. This has some of our favorite sailing footage, with surfs in the Southern Ocean to 27 knots. Winter Crossing will take you aboard the Sundeer 64 ketch Artemis during a storm tossed out of season crossing of the North Atlantic. Want to spend more time in the South Pacific?

Finally, come back aboard Beowulf for a 2900 mile record breaking passage between the Marquesas Islands in the South Pacific and San Diego California, dodging two hurricanes along the way.
