Searching for their island in the sun, Winfried Heiringhoff and his partner Helen decided to look for a remote island in the South Pacific, where they could live without a care in the world. In their research for the perfect island, they found writings about Suvarov, part of the Cook Islands, which had been discovered by a Russian Sailing Ship. Once occupied by US Marines, who had used it as a lookout post against the Japanese Fleet, it was abandoned after the war. The marines had left behind a large water tank to catch the rainwater, barracks for accommodation, some pigs who had turned feral, and a lagoon abundant with fish. It seemed the perfect paradise for Winfried and Helen, but it was hundreds of miles from Sidney. How could they get there? Adrift for 93 Days on the Pacific Ocean depicts the determined pair as they saved every dime they could dreaming of their island in the sun and the boat that could carry them there. Winfried Heiringhoff shares the fantastical experience of their struggle for a peaceful place in the world. Having secured a motor sailboat, they motored from Bora Bora to Hawaii, getting hopelessly lost on their journey. They faced even greater danger when the motor broke down beyond repair. Sails were rotting in their protective sleeves because of neglect. Matches to light the gas stove for a meal tea were damp. The sextant was dysfunctional. The fishing gear was in disarray, ill suited for deep sea fishing. And the pump to extract water from the leaking bilge did t function. Adrift for 93 Days on the Pacific Ocean reveals the true story of their harrowing survival, enduring ninety-three days on the unforgiving ocean, fifty-three days without food. Discover the fear one pair felt when set adrift in the Pacific.
