White Squall is the true story of a ship school called the “Albatross.” The school is run by the captain, Christopher “Skipper” Sheldon and his wife, Dr. Alice Sheldon. In 1960, the couple took aboard eight teenage boys from around the country for eight months of learning how to sail, be a crew, and respect one another. The crew goes through hard times and more laid-back times, but they must come together when a freak storm gets them in trouble in the middle of the ocean.
