Around Cape Horn – Irving Johnson 1929 Peking Footage

“The dog bit the wrong fellow. You’re not supposed to bite the paid sailors….He’s supposed to bite the trainees, you see. We had a lot of trainees aboard and they needed a little biting now and then to make them go a little faster.” LOL

ETA: The video was removed due to copyright claim. Too bad. Anyway, it provided a wonderful look at life at sea on a large sailing vessel.
