Sail away with Alexander!
Online video Ranking: four / five
truly amazing what they diid back in the day
Loved it, not a GPS or chartplotter in sight. Simple and rather wonderful
window on the past.
Beyond The West Horizon Great old video on world sailing..
Beautiful and timeless. Thank you very much.
What a genuine and absolutely priceless historical document!
Vaseline on the eggs to keep them fresher with no refrigeration was best
sailing tip I saw here..
They made it all look so easy. A lesson for all modern sailors.
How funny that he criticizes the Spaniards for making women do work, and
then spends so much time showing Susan doing the washing and cooking and
cleaning. “Susan is used to this sort of stove..”
actually they started 1 year before i was born
At 1hr17 they show the big suction dreadgers in the Suez Canel. I did a
Suez transit aboard the USS Bataan in 2006- they dreadgers were still
there, though some looked a litttle worse for wear. I bet they’re even the
same ones. Loved this part of the movie.
Awesome. Just awesome.
Absolutely legendary stuff!!! THX for the upload so much!!!
Wow what a sailor and never a complaint , thank you.
I am watching this
he made it sound easy yet 30 days of sailing 2hrs on 2 hours off
constantly at the helm thats hard work ,but thats the way it was
One day I’d like to do the same thing but I think my circumnavigation would
be incomplete – I’m not sure I’d be able to sail past the South Pacific
with the warm trades and clear water…
What a great journey. Thank you for sharing,
20:16 They rather look like faggots.
Thank you for posting. What an adventure….above all, no electronics …
so well made and very entertaining!
I am speechless!!
Wow. What an eye opener. You both nailed it. I hope you are both still
alive and healthy/happy.
I read “Come aboard” and “Southwest in Wanderer IV” many years ago, this
video is charming and delightful. From his accent to his references to his
wife, who seemed to be OK with her “chores”, quaint and very old fashioned
to say the least, but hardly surprising, they started the year I was born,
1952. They are also partially responsible for me sailing the Atlantic in
November 2015, something I’ve wanted to do since I read his books, along
with Joshua Slocum etc etc.
Susan does the cooking, shopping, and laundry, what does Eric do, play with
brilliant ..thank you for sharing
