We have been remiss in not posting about “Coffee with the Captain,” the wonderful Facebook video blog hosted by the highly respected schooner skipperCaptain Jan Milesof thePride of Baltimore II. The series began last April and is wonderfully entertaining as well as informative — discussing schooners, sailing, and the general strangeness of sailing during a pandemic. The most recent episode featured a Zoom chat between Captain Miles, thePride‘s Chief MateJeff Crosby, andCaptain Katelinn Shawof the schoonerAdventuress.
In the next episode, streaming live this Saturday, November 21st at 9 AM ET, Captain Miles will be sitting down for some socially distanced coffee withCaptain Daniel Morelandof thePicton Castle.The two Captains have known each other for 40+ years, have been shipmates (they sailed together inErnestina) and have each commanded their own vessels while sailing in company in a fleet of tall ships. Captain Moreland was a captain of the originalPride of Baltimoremany years ago. It should make for a fascinating discussion.
The great news is that if you cannot make the live broadcast, it will be posted on thePride of Baltimore‘sFacebook video page, along with the twenty-five or so previous episodes, and lots of other videos about thePride. Also, check out theirYoutube Channel.
