  1. Man, I am so jealous right now… There's nowhere I'd rather be than crossing oceans.
    This was a beautiful short film, Chris, very well made and produced like a real pro.

  7. Really incredible program. Wish I would've known about this much younger. The sea still found a way around my soul. Hope to see you guys on the water someday! We'll be in a much smaller vessel named Stella Maris. Would love to meet with the crew! Fair winds! – Brandon

  12. I used to do sail trailing on a traditional vessel on the south coast of England (Queen Galadrial). Recently I have been sailing commercial tallships (events and such) but this gave me enourmous nostalgia for the sail training I used to do. I am for sure going back to sail training once it is possible again. Cheers Chris, for reminding me how much I love sail training. This is an awesome insight into what sail training is all about.
