The Lonely Navigator

Four epic voyages carried out between 1931 and 1955, including the first circumnavigation vía Good Hope cape, Leeuwin Cape and Horn cape, elevated the Argentinian Vito Dumas as one of the largest lone navigators in history, raising it to the Olympus of the popular idols. But every hero also descends into hell. The envy of some and the hatred of others due to political reasons distorted his figure to turn Dumas into the "unmentionable" of the Argentine nautical.
Quattro epici incroci effettuati tra il 1931 e il 1955, tra cui la prima circumnavigazione che arrotondava Cape Horn, elevarono l'argentino Vito Dumas come uno dei più grandi marinai solitari della storia, portandolo all'Olimpo di idoli popolari. Ma ogni eroe scende anche all'inferno. L'invidia di alcuni e l'odio di altri tentarono di distorcere la sua figura fino a trasformare Dumas nell'innominabile della nautica argentina.
