Tall Ships Chronicles on Travel Channel 2
« on: August 08, 2008, 11:15:32 PM »

Watched an episode of this tonight.
Follows a modern tall ship on a long voyage. Very interesting insight into life on board.

For those of you who saw the documentary on the Gotenburg trip to China, this new prgramme is much better.

Tonight they sailed through a gale, and had to splice the mainbrace. They even hauled in all canvas, as they were 200 miles from an island and the captain did not wish to risk the crew being run aground.

Fascinating stuff.
