Re: Sailing specific songs

That one talks about a barco, this one about a "barquinho" that means little boat and is dedicated to all Brazilian members that seem to be growing in number. The same song, five great interpretations, quite different:

Re: Sailing specific songs

Alasdair is probably the best Scottish fiddler in the world. We had him and Natalie here in the Adirondacks for a concert last winter. The "Sitting in the Stern..." tune fits the sailing rubric but many of the Scottish songs reference the sea. Sitting in the Stern of a Boat by alasdair fraser | Song | Free Music, Listen Now

Re: Sailing specific songs

I tried but I could not hear the song. But I heard others. Excellent musician

Another Scottish old traditional one, the The Mingalay Boat Song.

A love this interpretation by Helen Faherty, a capela.



Other different and great interpretations starting with the great musician that is
Richard Thompson:

Re: Sailing specific songs

I'd second Lightfoot's "Cape Horn"; the offered u-toob iteration was quite a broad interpretation. Then there's "Christian Island (Georgian Bay)" and, IIRC, another somewhere.
