Titre original : On the Other Shore of the Stormy Sea
Captain Nieven cannot be convinced to at least allow Candy to continue the journey. To cross to the other ship, Candy and Cookie board the lifeboat and are rowed towards the other. But when Captain Nieven receives a telegram about a storm warning, he halts the mission. Everybody is in a frenzy to secure the crates, but one of the moorings snaps and several crates fall on top of Cookie who breaks his leg. While Candy tends to Cookie's broken leg, the crew dredges the water that seeped in via a breach in the cargo hold. Cookie fears he will be a cripple for the rest of his life, escapes his cabin and wants to throw himself overboard: he believes he can never become the sailor he always wanted to be and has no reason to live any more. Candy holds on to Cookie for dear life, almost being dragged overboard herself, until Captain Nieven pulls them back aboard, preaching Cookie about true sailors. Candy realizes that unlike Terry and Cookie who have a passion for a profession, she simply plods on her road of life to show everyone how strong she is. Then Viva runs into her cabin to alert her of their upcoming arrival in the US.
