Shipping By Sea in 1928

An incredible film entitled: Four Masted Barque rounding Cape Horn in 1928, with narration by the cameraman, is what I’m sharing here, just for rainy day fun.

“All credit to Mystic Seaport videos for creating this wonderful film. They should have a dedicated utube channel for these films as we may be missing some classics. A rare and wonderful part of history capturing a square-rigged ship in full motion. This incredible film was made by Captain Irving Johnson in 1928, when he was but a swabby before the mast.”

From 17 story high masts, the cameraman films the waves washing over the deck during a storm.

The fearlessness and skill of the sailors is impressive.
