Captain Robin Walbridge on the HMS Bounty

The HMS Bounty sank off the coast of North Carolina due to high seas brought on by Hurricane Sandy at the end of October. With the unfortunate loss of a crew member, Claudene Christian and Captain Robin Walbridge, these incidents remind you how powerful the ocean’s forces can be.

I was fortunate to spend some time with Captain Robin Walbridge and his crew on the HMS Bounty a few years back while they were in Victoria Harbour on Vancouver Island for the Tall Ship Festival. Captain Walbridge had a love of the ocean and his crew, very much apparent while I was on board.

A photo gallery dedicated to a much loved captain.
