Unfurling the World (DVD)
by Mystic Seaport
Between 1933 and 1956, Irving and Electa ("Exy") Johnson sailed the world with young, inexperienced sailors aboard a schooner named "Yankee". Their ports of call included remote places that few people had visited, including Easter Island and Bali. This film is produced by noted sailor and sailing commentator Gary Jobson; he also narrates original footage shot by Captain Johnson and the Yankee crews (now archived at Mystic Seaport). Includes exclusive new interviews with former crew members. DVD 77 min.
