PODCAST SHOW NOTES

Todays featured spot is  an interview with Captain Joshua Berger of the schooner Adventuress of Sound Experience.  Sound Experience is the caretaker of the 1913 BB Crowninshield designed 2 masted gaff rigged topsail 101′ schooner.

Joshua grew up in New York sailing on Manhassett Bay with his father.  He competitively raced  Bluejays, 420’s, 505’s, and Lasers during college and high school.  As a youth he sailed on the Clearwater – a Pete Seeger replica of a Hudson River sloop – and became intrigued by science-based environmental education aboard a sailing ship.

After several sailings to the West Indies and working on charter boats – including an Alden Schooner – Joshua moved to the west coast and attended the Evergreen State College studying experiential education while living on a 1930’s John Thomas Taylor designed ’28 ketch.  Soon after he captained the Clearwater and eventually became one of the Captains of Adventuress.
