Mar 15 2021 • 1 hr 10 mins

Welcome to season two! We kick off this season with Captain Jamie Trost, Port Captain for Grays Harbor Historical Seaport in Aberdeen, Washington.  While he had a less than auspicious start as a sailor, tall ships eventually proved too strong of a calling. We spend time in Japan, visit an algae graveyard in the Great Lakes, and learn that is no better place to be a sailor than in Baltimore, Ireland.

Ships mentioned: Adventuress, AJ Meerwald, Amistad, Appledore IV, Denis Sullivan, Highlander Sea, Inland Seas,  Lady Washington, Liberty (now Freda B.), U.S. Brig Niagara, Pathfinder and Playfair, Pride of Baltimore II,  Sloop Providence, HMS Rose, Sultana.

Programs mentions: Ocean Classroom Foundation, Sea Education Foundation, Portland Schooner Company.

Captain Trost spent time in Okayama Prefecture and mentioned the Bisei Observatory and Bitchū Matsuyama Castle.
