'This is the story of a nine day voyage through time and space in ten simple small boats and a wooden whale boat in the wake of the nunnagahs, the foreign explorers, the convict ships the whalers and  trading ketches of the past, and the fishing boats and yachts of the present, towards the biggest wooden boat festival in the southern hemisphere which is held every two years in Hobart, Tasmania.' (taken from John Young's introduction) 

Ten years later, and the spirit expressed in that film lives on: see the trailer at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLTbHd8A1Sw (or click on the video link below).
