An illustrated presentation by Mike Austin of the story of Joshua Slocum who in 1890 having been shipwrecked in southern Brazil built the “Liberdade”.
Joshua later became the first man to circumnavigate the world alone in the “Spray”.
He was followed by David Sinnett-Jones who circumnavigated the world 1985-88 in a copy of Joshua's “Spray”.
Later, David and Mike retraced the voyage of the “Liberdade” from Paranaguá, Brazil to New York, including nineteen days single-handed from Antigua to Norfolk VA.
Music and shanties - raising money, awareness and possible crew members for the Jubilee Sailing Trust.
The evening comprises photos and films from Steve’s trips, interspersed with live performances of songs about the sea from the likes of Rod Stewart, Queen, the Beach Boys and Bobby Darin, as well as folk songs and shanties.
So wet your singing voices!
