In an unlikely series of events, Nick Jaffe turned to the sea at age 26. Departing England in a 26ft boat, he would sail home to Australia, singlehanded over four years. This formative adventure would become the first of several, including a second Pacific crossing, a voyage from Palau to Darwin, the Australian east coast, across Bass Strait in an 86 year old open boat, and most recently, nonstop across the Bight.
