This year’s Schooner Challenge (to benefit the Essex Shipbuilding Museum) featured Adventure, Ardelle and Thomas E Lannon, gentle breezes and more singing than usual. The video was shot from the deck of Adventure. All music by guests and crews.
Walt was born on August 31, 1819 and died on March 26, 1892. Among his greatest poems is Out of The Cradle Endlessly Rocking. The first stanza is 24 lines long and consists of a single grammatically correct sentence. I have attempted to capture the mood and import of that stanza in this short (5 minute) video.

This Wingaersheek Beach view is one of my favorites.
“To me the sea is a continual miracle; The fishes that swim–the rocks–the motion of the waves–the ships, with men in them, What stranger miracles are there?” – Walt Whitman
