Re: Joshua Slocum

I like this video. It was good to see more about his background before his sail around the world.

Re: Joshua Slocum

Thanks for that deniseO30.
The video never mentioned that he and his family were Quakers who disapproved of the American revolution (1776) which is why the family moved up to Nova Scotia.
Royalists were not very popular in "the colonies" at that time.

Re: Joshua Slocum

I agree, deniseO30!

A truly remarkable book. A Legendary voyage told with the same level of literary skill that Slocum had for his adventuring. A disarmingly well written story.

Another worthy volume about Slocum is, "The Hard Way Around, The passages of Joshua Slocum", by Geoffrey Wolff. He fills in a lot of Slocum's life history.

Getting a little long in the tooth, my wife and I have discussed, "The Josh Slocum Plan for Long Term Care"! He just kept going about his life until he couldn't manage the situation anymore. One more departure than arrival. I would love to follow his east to west rounding of The Horne.

Re: Joshua Slocum

I put the Librivox audio book recording of Capt. Slocum's masterpiece on my iPhone. When I listen to it at work, I am transported out of my cubicle into cockpit of the Spray!

Re: Joshua Slocum

Thanks Denise. I really enjoyed that. I met his great grand daughter in Maine about a year ago.
