The story of the doomed voyage of the Sea Venture, which set sail in 1609 to re-supply the starving Jamestown colony.

When a hurricane swamped the newly built ship, it wrecked off the coast of Burmuda, leaving the passengers stranded.

To reach their destination, and the desperate colonists in Virginia, the passengers had to build two new ships on the unsettled island of Bermuda. After a ten month delay, they arrived to find that most of the colonists had starved to death.
