Brigantine Romance’s Sea Stories

Brigantine Romance

My friend and former colleague Mike Jehle, who’s now the executive director of the Fairfield Museum and Historical Center, sent me a link to the below trailer for a documentary about the Brigantine Romance. Like many before him, Mike’s life was forever changed by his experiences sailing aboard this amazing ship under the command of American Sail Training Association Lifetime Achievement Award winner Captain Arthur Kimberly and his wife Mrs. Kimberly. It’s great to see the crew coming back together to capture the rich history of the Romance.

The Squaresail.com website is a great resource on the ship. I particularly enjoyed reading through the logs and imagining what those round the world trip must have been like. But if you’re an armchair adventurer like me, touring this website can still be pretty exciting.
