REAL LIVE FOOTAGE 1928 ROUNDING CAPE HORN ON 4 MASTED BARQUE



This black and white documentary is filmed LIVE from the deck of a ship sailing from Hamburg to Chile to collect a load of fertilizer in 1929 by one man with a period movie camera... 8mm?. The ship was designed for rounding the horn, the people real men on a real ship in 1929, long after the age of sail. The storms in the North Sea and off Cape Horn real storms. Two men were lost overboard on this voyage, and the captain was a large than life man........ Some idiot threw away the mold!! The nautical books we have all read don't hold a candle to this real life film that we can view because someone posted it to Utube.

Great stuff! Especially the part about "never seen that much water washing over a boat that wasn't sunk!" I don't feel so bad about the occasional splash in the face now.

Thanks, owly!
The books & articles by Irving and Electa [Exy] Johnson [aboard “Yankee”], and Eric and Susan Hiscock [aboard “Wanderer”], and also Sterling Hayden [also “Wanderer”] provided some of my first introductions, and inspiration, to the idea of cruising.
