Ep. 56: Sailing the OGRE, the log of a woman wanderer (annotated) by Mable Stock read by Linus Wilson
Mabel Stock, her brother Ralph, and their friend buy a 47-foot, gaff-rigged sailboat after World War I and from 1919 to 1920 sail it half-way across the world. They are one of the first cruising yachts to transit the Panama Canal in the Ogre sailboat. They go on to sail the South Pacific. This is one of the earliest accounts of a sailing yacht cruise authored by a woman. Mabel Stock joins the ranks of the Captain J. C. Voss and Joshua Slocum as an earlier pioneer of long-distance cruising in small sailing yachts. Mabel Stock and other crew sail from England to Spain, the Canary Islands, Barbados, Panama, the Galapagos, Nuku Hiva, Marquesas, Tahiti, Palmerston Atoll, and Nukualofa, Tonga.
Mabel M. Stock (b. 1874 d. 1941) was a world traveler, piano player, sailor, and single woman ahead of her time. She is the older sister and travel partner of the famous writer for books and films, Ralph Stock (b. 1881 d. 1962). This is her only book and was originally published in 1923. This is based on the 2019 Oxriver Publishing edition (c) 2019, Linus Wilson.
