Joshua Slocum
and His Travels

Nova Scotia born, with family roots in New England, Captain Slocum commanded some of the finest tall ships that ever sailed the seas. On April 24, 1895, at the age of 51, he departed Boston in his tiny sloop Spray and sailed around the world single-handed, a passage of 46,000 miles, returning to Newport, Rhode Island on June 27, 1898. This historic achievement made him the patron saint of small-boat voyagers, navigators and adventurers all over the world.

This web site was an attempt to encourage other sailors, maintain a complete record of all single-handed circumnavigators, to popularize the legendary first solo circumnavigator, Captain Joshua Slocum, and offer membership in the Joshua Slocum Society International. The web was the ideal place to record, and to keep up-to-date, the growing list of the heroic sailors who have accomplished the feat of sailing around the world alone and to document the details of their vessels and voyages. The Society's mission was to honor all solo long distance sailors that accomplish these epic voyages.

The Joshua Slocum Society International (JSSI) was unfortunately disbanded in July 2011. This site is being maintained for historical reasons.
