Did Friederich Schienle Enjoy Sailing? 

I have often wondered what it was like for a 22 year old German boy to sail to the New World without friend, family, money -and/or- probably not able to speak the language (English). I came across an article on the internet entitled, “Facing the Stormy Atlantic” which I think gives us some ‘feel’ for the journey. Take a look and tell us what you think.
