This nautical lore podcast speaks of legendary sailors and the books (and in some cases, other media) featuring them. Jim also talks briefly about this year’s “Race to Alaska” event, in which Jim’s son Russell Brown will compete.
There are some great yarns all throughout this episode. These include stores about Joshua Slocum, Irving McClure Johnson, Sterling Hayden and Tristan Jones.
And Jim reveals why a lot of the supposedly historically accurate reproduction boats that have been built in the modern era are rather poor sailing vessels when compared to the boats they’re supposedly “re-creating.”
A plethora of adventure stories awaits listeners in this capercast.
