Over fifty years ago, 17-year old Hamilton, Ontario native, Don Green, set sail on the adventure of a lifetime.
Eighteen months, 45,000 miles and over 120 ports later, the teenager had experienced some of the world's most remote destinations. His home had been aboard the Yankee, a ship less than 100 feet in length.
Along with 20 other youthful sailors, Don witnessed what few had seen in that post WWII era. He and his crewmates lived with the descendants of the Bounty mutineers on Pitcairn Island, faced wild headhunting tribes in New Guinea and flirted with the local beauties under the palms of Tahiti.
Half a century has passed. To commemorate the anniversary, Don's adventure is being told in the one-hour documentary, "White Wings Around the World".
The program features the best of over 10 hours of colour 16mm film shot during the 18-month voyage from 1950-52.
