A two-part Spectrum documentary.
In April 1978, Bill Belcher competed in the New Plymouth to Mooloolaba solo yacht race. He never made it. Seven days out from New Plymouth, he was shipwrecked on Middleton Reef. His meeting with his wife was delayed until the 20th May. Between those two dates, he spent 28 days in an inflatable lifeboat.
