Pacific Castaways: Adrift on the Ocean (Part 2 of 2)

Nov. 9, 2023

We return to the shipwrecked crew of the Lucette. After their yacht was sunk by killer whales, the Robertsons have failed to flag down a passing ship. Now, with just a raft and a dinghy to carry them, the castaways must summon their resilience and focus on Plan B: navigating six hundred miles back to dry land… You can see the Robertsons’ tiny dinghy at the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth, UK: A Noiser production, written by Joe Viner.
