J. M. Ahlbrand, an e-education consultant and sailing buff, has created a fascinating Google Earth document that lets one follow in Joshua Slocum and Spray’s footsteps on his epic first-ever solo sail around the world.
From the author:
I have just completed a little project and would welcome some feedback/suggestions for improvement.
I have created a textually enabled map of the voyage of Joshua Slocum the first man to circumnavigate the world single-handed.
This interactive adventure is divided into 8 segments or “legs”. This is not just a path to follow, rather, it is an opportunity for the “adventurer” to explore the world through modern eyes from the perspective of Capt. Slocum.
There are over 100 waypoints. Each waypoint has excerpts from Capt. Slocum’s book Sailing Alone Around the World.
Follow the voyage of Captain Joshua Slocum on his historic quest to become the first man to circumnavigate the globe alone.
