In 1983, Tami and her boyfriend Richard were sailing in the South Pacific. A category 5 hurricane ran into them! The ship capsized. Tami was still in the lower decks and unconscious. She woke up after 27 hours. Richard was gone. She sailed 40 days to what she thought was Hawaii, without a safe line or main mast. She ended up in some harbor, thankful to be alive.
