Mike Austin will tell the tales of two voyages of the Liberdade, over 100 years apart.

In the first he talks about Joshua Slocum, who built the Liberdade when he was shipwrecked in southern Brazil, and became the first man to circumnavigate the
world alone in the Spray.
In the second he tells of his colleague David Sinnett-Jones who circumnavigated the world in a copy of Joshua's Spray. David later built a copy of Liberdade and then, with Mike,retraced the original voyage from Paranaguá, Brazil to New York.
