Tall Ships Down

For all its romance, the tall-ship renaissance has a tragic side. Working from official documents, survivor and expert interviews, and his own tall-ship experience, Parrott re-creates the losses of five sail-training vessels: the 316-footPamir(1957), 117-footAlbatross(1961), 117-footMarques(1984), 137-footPride of Baltimore(1986), and 125-footMaria Asumpta(1995). He vividly re-creates each final voyage and then explores the roles played by ship stability, structural integrity, weather, human error, and standards of risk in tragedies at sea.
