    History shows that fewer than 200 sailors have circumnavigated the globe alone. Even today, the most skilled skippers aboard state-of-the-art vessels are stretched to their mental, physical and emotional limits by such an undertaking. SAILING THE WORLD ALONE  documents the tragedy and triumph of the 1994-95 BOC Challenge. From the moment these 20 skippers set sail from Charleston, South Carolina, on this 27,000 mile solo sailing race, they are at the mercy of the elements, relying solely on their boats and individual skills.
