The Christian Radich and The Windjammer a part of my youth
24 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

Saw this movie as an 11 yr old. Totally enthralled as a child ... my mother was Swedish, so there was the Scendinavian interest. Grew up near Boston, ever fascinated with the ocean. The thought of going to sea as a cadet was a dream. I listened to the Windjammer record 100's of times, I'm sure. Was proud that the Christian Radich had visited Boston and that the young piano-playing cadet performed Edvard Grieg's piano concerto with Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops. The summer after high school graduation (1964), I boarded the Christian Radich in the Chicago harbor after it had sailed down the St Lawrence Seaway .. into the Great Lakes. I befriended one of the young cadets (my age) and after a tour of the C.R., walked the streets of Chicago with my new friend, discussing the realities of life on the great Norwegian sailing vessel. One of the highlights of my youth.
