Subject: RE: Save historic ship The City Of Adelaide
I well remember being part of the first shanty session aboard the James Craig. The volunteer crew had learned something about sailing but hardly anything about singing sea songs. The Roaring Forties knew little about sailing but they were (and are) great shanty singers. It was really a wonderful evening and I'm pleased that the sea music sessions are still held, and that the Craig is actually sailed.

It can be done!
