While it takes strength and determination to compete in the TransPacific Yacht Race, a 2,200 mile voyage from California to Hawaii, Rock the Boat records the journey of one crew in this race who display a different kind of bravery -- all 10 men on board are HIV-positive, and are battling not only the ocean and the elements, but also a disease that threatens to kill them and a stereotype that judges them unfairly.
