Student Survival Story from High School Tall Ship Concordia Sinking (video)

George Stroumboulopoulos, the host of the popular CBC tv show The Hour, did a terrific interview with Natasha Carruthers, a sail trainee/student aboard the high school tall ship Concordia when it sank off the coast of Brazil on February 17, 2010.  The video is a little jumpy but the audio does the job. Carruthers tells an amazing first hand account of what happened.  She’s joined by Class Afloat instructor Ryan Cleland who had recently gotten off the ship and tells what transpired in Lunenberg, Nova Scotia, Canada, the ship’s homeport.
