A tall ship is trapped on a sandbar in 1885, broadsided by heavy seas and doomed to destruction and break up on a lonely Brazilian beach. This just the beginning of an incredible sea adventure by a North American Sea Captain, his wife and two sons.
This recording includes two additional true adventures written by Captain Slocum: “Rescue of some Gilbert Islanders” and “The Voyage of the ‘Destroyer’ From New York to Brazil.
These three adventures were experienced and written by Captain Slocum before he wrote the most famous sailing adventure ever written, “Sailing Alone Around the World.”
