My journey to retire and sail. Writing, reading, technology, programming, photography, coffee, equality, sailing, and the oxford comma.

"Beyond the West Horizon" by Eric and Susan Hiscock

I ran across the film by Eric and Susan Hiscock narrating their three plus year circumnavigation in the early '50's.

The film has great historic images and events. Around the 20 minute mark, they visit the Panama Canal, and it's a fascinating look at cargo and trade transport now more than half a century ago.

Another reason I found the whole thing fascinating is their 30 foot yacht, Wanderer III.

Enjoy!
