Seeking Nirvana - "The Tales of Vienna"

This is the sailing vessel Vienna, 36 feet in length, a beam 11.5 feet wide, mast 52 feet tall. This journey takes place mere miles from the harbor of Vancouver, where Vienna was built in 1982. Comfortably sleeping five, the vessel is outfitted with the simplest comforts of home.

The inlets of the British Columbian coast are especially prone to winter storms, gale force winds and relentless precipitation. These five men embark on a journey in search of rough seas and secluded mountainous areas. Tacking their way up the coast, they are in for more than sailing and skiing. A fictional story based on true events.
