How does Fishpond Work?

We won't be beaten by anyone. Guaranteed

At the edge of a cliff lies the wreck of a small sailboat. How did it get there? Waves carried it up in a storm, says an old sailor. But is it possible that waves could ever go that high? There is another story the story of a boy and his desire to be the greatest sailor, the story of a storm that carried the boy and his boat to a place where boats glide like gulls high above the water.
