Transatlantic with Street DVD
A 2 hour master class on crossing an ocean safely without GPS, long range radio or even an engine. In 1985, a pre ARC, it is a voyage into the unknown, truly an adventure. A classic Trade Wind passage, via 11 ocean islands. The last 2100 miles from the Verdes is a very fast 14 day passage but drinking water runs short before "Iolaire" reaches Antigua safely. " In today's electronic world, professionally produced sailing DVDs put the information you've paid for in the palm of your hand. Transatlantic with Street, shot aboard veteran seaman Don Street's engineless 1905 yawl, Iolaire, is on a different tack altogether. Shot in the mid 1980s on a passage from Europe to Antigua, it reminds us that seafaring can still be rough, tough and wildly at odds with today's well-organised ARC crossings.
