The job of 1st mate on a schooner carrying cargo across the Atlantic Ocean sounds like a story from the 19th century, but that is what Stephen found himself doing after a career in computer marketing.  With a lifelong interest in sea shanties, this was a dream voyage - to experience the stories in the songs for real.  Prepare for adventure, flying fish, trade winds and concertinas!
