Twenty-four sailors from every walk of life, of every age and temperament, living literally cheek-by-jowl for week after week, away from family and friends sometimes for months at a time. All crammed in an elderly 40 metre metal hulled boat - in seas of all conditions with temperatures often in the 30's.
Swain is the HMAS Hammersley's chief medic and coxswain. Chris has a hard time being away from both his wife and daughter for weeks at a time.
