Joshua Slocum


Joshua SlocumJoshua Slocum (1844-1909) grew up on Brier Island and became the first person to sail alone around the world in 1898.  As a young man working in his family's bootshop, Slocum dreamed of a life at sea. He first went to sea as a boy of 14 and then left home for good at the age of 16. The bootshop still stands to this day on Water Street.

In 1895 he set sail alone on his 37' gaff rigged oyster sloop named Spray on his solo navigation around the world, a feat no one else had ever accomplished. Upon his return, Slocum published a detailed memoir of his journey, the classic book Sailing Alone Around The World.   Joshua Slocum Wikipedia Page
