"Pretty much, we just go sailing": On board St. Lawrence II with Captain Chris Chafe
Show Notes

Shout out to Railton, Ontario! This week, Erin gets the unredacted scoop on Captain Chris Chafe. Captain Chafe is the executive director at Tall Ship Expeditions Canada (T.S.E.C.) - Brigantine Incorporated (www.tallshipexpeditions.com) and captain of St. Lawrence II out of Kingston, Ontario.

Chris and Erin realize they have strong feelings about tides.  We talk about how, sometimes, the right ship to do the job is the smallest ship to do the job , how you should never judge a captain by his red Converse, and, how their peer-led youth sail training program has evolved. Grab your skateboard and a Molson as we travel to the deep south of Canada.

Ships mentioned: Empire Sandy, Europa, Kajama, HMCS Oriole, Pathfinder, Playfair, Tres Hombres.
