As a picturesque and perfect summer arrives in Michigan, a father and son prepare to sail around Lake Superior, one of the largest freshwater lakes in the world. It is a trip three years in the making and filled with planned stops for wreck diving, camping, and hiking. The water is deep, the wind is just right, and the sunsets are sublime.

However, there is also a reason that the majority of the Superior coastline is referred to as remote. When you are far away from home and help, you only have yourself to count on when danger approaches. And for Robin and Tristian Norris, what they find will be a nightmare.

It isn’t a question of will they survive, but who will survive?

Grab a lifejacket and find something or someone to hold on to, it’s time to go sailing.
