The Call of the Sagas
Pekka Piri, Jonathan Hutchings
A THRILLING TRUE STORY THAT MADE NAUTICAL HISTORY
In the year 1994, skipper Pekka Piri and navigator Matti Pulli piloted a 7-meter motorboat from Helsinki over the Baltic Sea, North Sea and North Atlantic to Iceland.
Both 48 years old, Piri had lost his career as a personnel manager, and Pulli had lost his ship, the freighter m/s Finnpolaris, in a wreck off the west coast of Greenland. Now what they both needed was space.
On May 17, 1994, they set out on a 2,200-mile voyage into the unknown. A journey that began with a skipper's dream and a navigator's faith in that dream led to unshakable trust in each other.
