"The Ghosts of Cape Horn"
Now Streaming Online at www.nshof.org

As a Labor Day tribute to all the brave seafarers who risked their lives sailing the oceans, including rounding Cape Horn, in the name of commerce and an honest day of work, the National Sailing Hall of Fame is streaming from our home page and our online Film Library a rarely-seen documentary - "The Ghosts of Cape Horn."

Narrated by Jason Robards, this hour-long documentary uses rare footage and photos to follow the boats and crews of the late 19th and early 20th centuries who dared the 18,000 mile voyage from New York to San Francisco, including passage around the infamous Cape Horn. After your long weekend of sailing, relax and watch how these sailors worked their trade.
