Between 1933 and 1956, Irving and Electa Johnson sailed with young, inexperienced sailors aboard two schooners, both named Yankee. Each time the Johnsons set sail for a voyage, they witnessed new and remote places that few people had visited.
World class sailor and film producer Gary Jobson narrates the original footage shot by Captain Johnson and the Yankee crews which is now archived at Mystic Seaport. In exclusive new interviews some of the crew members pay tribute to the Johnsons and share their lifetime memories of the voyages around the world. The travels took the Johnsons and the crews to the mysterious Easter Island and the beautiful Bali where they meet intriguing inhabitants and experienced true maritime history when they raised the anchor of the HMS Bounty on Pitcairn Island.
