This is the story of the Eye of the Wind, one of the few square rig vessels in the world still sailing.

The story starts with a group of Australians looking for a vessel to convert to square rig, and their discovery and painstaking restoration of an old hull. It ends with the subsequent voyages of a vessel that now recreates the romance of seafaring under canvas.

Cover: Additional square-sails on main-mast, entering Sydney 1982.
