While there was canned food and water in the hold, the only navigational tool left was a traditional sextant. The next six weeks were a gruelling battle for survival. Having managed to rig a makeshift sail, hallucinations began to set in — including an island thought to be Hawaii appearing on the horizon one day, only to disappear the next. A tiny plane failed to spot the boat — if ever it had been in the sky at all.

Now a major film and in cinemas from 29 June, Adrift is an amazing tale of courage and the will to survive in the face of seemingly impossible odds. Adrift is an astonishing and inspiring story of courage and survival in the face of gruelling conditions. Once it became a life-and-death situation, I got real good, real quick. I still had one little sail left, even though all the other sails went overboard.
Once I got that up and I had steerage, I could actually move the boat. Then all these little things started being put in place. Finding that I had a quarter of a tank of water, that was a huge turning point.
Finding my watch in the bilge so that I could find out exactly where I was on the chart instead of just sailing by latitude. There were a lot of little things that kept me going. Just seeing her alone, with no land in sight, with that wrecked boat—oh my gosh, it just brought me right back. It was just so surreal. It was like, God, that was me. I just wept. Shailene Woodley plays Tami Oldham Ashcraft, who spent 41 days at sea in a wrecked yacht.
