After 9 years toiling in the back garden of his South London home, his 44ft ocean-going yacht was ready to set sail. The first obstacle of course was how to get the steel vessel from the back yard of a small suburban street to the London docks. Kiwi Breeze tells the inspirational story of Steve’s 24,000km voyage home to New Zealand… and his determination to achieve his dream.
