'The Dead Ocean' - Ivan Macfadyen
Newcastle yachtsman Ivan Macfadyen's firsthand account of the Pacific Ocean, which he describes as 'broken' and 'dead'. Ten years ago Ivan charted a course between Melbourne and Osaka. He could throw out a line on that trip and catch a fish anywhere, anytime. Now, Ivan says, sailing along that same route, he came to a dead ocean - no fish, no birds. Hardly a sign of life.
