You can go aloft. Google search 'tall ship voyages,' then book a passage, sign on as crew, and have a great time.

Joys of the internet, otherwise never would have known of this.

Wilfried Schuler

Very nice version. Excellent mandolin play.

Richard Brorsson

I really love the more playful music and singing of this version! The mandolin doing that great bit during or after the refrain is amazing!

Zac Davis

What a fantastic photo. Looks like it's off "The last Cape Horners" or something of like, where'd you get it?

John Fenner

Close !. But it’s the “Garthsnaid” taken about 1920. You won’t find it in “ The Last Grain Race”
or “Learning The Ropes” by Newby. But his Photos are absolutely wonderful.

+Zac Davis That picture was taken by Eric Newby from one of the masts of the clipper ship Moshulu. He took part in the last shipment of grain by sail from Australia to the old world in 1939 and wrote the excellent "The last Grain Race" about his experiences on board. That picture, along with many others equally fine, appears in the book.

Ole Bergen

just as it shoukd be sang. Tks

I live now in Pennsylvania but I grew up in Adelaide South Australia. (Glenelg). My brother and I used to ride our bikes down to Port Adelaide to play on the old Sailing ship that were driven up to rot on the "hard" in the Port River "nooks". What memories. This is a pumping song. It has many verses not sung these days but still one of the best chanteys around.

.yes south australia was the last place square rigged sailing ships sailed to..right up until the outreak of ww2 they sailed down with the trades from europe..around.south africa...overvto australia and back around the horn. A very fast way to go.. They mainly picked up wheat and wool..and were usually crewed by swedes..finns germans and baltic seamen..of the gustav line..many saiing ships still sailed into newcastle in NSW. And i think the last one to leave newcastle was in 1947. Captain joshua slocum often sailed to newcastle when he was a merchant mariner
