Early-bird Special!

The long-awaited In a Cloud of Sails will be available in July. Including a large number of original, colour pictures, this is the definitive sailing experience!

Read about the visage of Captain Cook high up on the main royal, shaking his head at the antics of modern seamen as they build a three-masted barque in the shadow of North Vancouver’s Second Narrows Crossing, then sail the ship down the coast and over to Tahiti, past New Zealand to Botany Bay. There, the renamed Endeavour II is the feature ship during Australia’s 1970 Bicentenary celebrations, viewed by Queen Elizabeth II and dignitaries from around the world.

And through all of that, they were simple people, fighting amongst themselves, battling the Pacific Ocean, holding together what turned out to be a rather compromised design.
