I'm just your typical small town sailor: Captain Alex Peacock aboard Spirit of Bermuda (and sometimes Lynx)
Join Erin as she talks to Captain Alex Peacock, current captain with Spirit of Bermuda www.bermudasloopfoundation.org and sometime captain with Tall Ship Lynx www.tallshiplynx.com. We discuss sailing to Cuba, where the barter system is alive and well, a furry first mate that spoke to dolphins, and the joy of watching students have their eureka moment. For those keeping track, this is the fifth time Erin mentions the Welland Canal.
