Have you ever taken a leap of faith? Left the safety of the shore just for the chance – the hope – that one day you will look back and say it was all worth it. Have you ever set out on a journey with a destination you’re not sure you’ll ever reach, your course uncharted, with only your determination and the strength of your will to guide you?
This is the story of the US Sailing Team Sperry.
That’s the US Sailing Team Sperry. A group of elite athletes and para-athletes from a range of backgrounds and experiences, but they share the same goal: to be the best in the world. Uncharted follows twelve of these fierce competitors on their quest to compete against the best in the world this August.
The journey begins in August 2015 at the Rio Test Event, where the athletes have their first chance to compete in Guanabara Bay. From there, we follow them around the world as they prepare for team selection events in 2016 where only one boat from each class will earn a chance to compete against the best sailors in the world. Through race footage, in-depth interviews and on-the-road video diaries Uncharted tells the story of these athletes, documenting each incredible triumph, devastating setback and agonizing sacrifice in the relentless pursuit of the athletic dream.
