Around Cape Horn

In 1929 the last great days of commercial sail were passing. During that year Captain Irving Johnson sailed aboard the massive bark PEAKING. In this program he narrates the passage in the style that has made him a favourite on the lecture circuit around the world. The most spectacular scenes are filmed during a wild storm as the ship rounds the feared Cape Horn.

This Video is 37 minutes long and filmed in black and white
