Delightfully high-spirited novella about a captain who manages to sink one ship after another while sailing the high seas.
The village masters have grand designs for Vilhelm Huurna. The young captain would do well to sail the seas to gather wealth. Huurna wants to live up to the expectations, but he was not born under the auspices of fate. The unlucky captain manages to sink one ship after another.
Keep your chin up and the mainsail raised! Reality repeatedly hits Huurna right in the face. But much like the protagonist of a silent film, he always picks himself up to face new adversities.
