Maitahi seems to have a number of brave souls who are keen to brave Outward Bound in the middle of winter for the 21day masters course.
This year Linda Heath left at the beginning of June on a 21 day journey that is changing her life.
Armed with heaps of warm clothes she braved cold water (no hot showers for the first 5 days), 6am PT and the morning before-breakfast-run, found she loved sailing and enjoyed her solo.
