my father was on the yankee when it got shipwrecked. he was just retelling me some of the stories of that day and i thought i would look online to see if there was any dvd footage - and i came accross your message here.
i know you wrote this nearly 2 yrs ago now, and hopefully you will see this message, but i would dearly love to buy a copy off you (if thats ok) for my dad.
he would be soooooooooooo happy. he's nearly 70 now and he has a great memory of that time and i know how much he would appreciate a copy.
so if you would make an old man happy please email me email@example.com
thank you very much
Like the others, I would love to get a hold of any Yankee footage. Please advise, if purchase is feasible. Much appreciated. Or anybody??
Did you ever get a reply to your post from Stuart Sarjeant?
I have never received a reply from Stuart nor anyone else. I have e-mailed a lady who's relative was on the Yankee also, got her email somewhere during an on line search but never a reply from her. I have never received a undeliverable reply to the addresses so hard to tell what became of my inquiries. I seem to have stalled in my search for video of the Yankee. Currently, I'm upset with the HMS Bounty disaster and also followed this boat as I did the Yankee. Sorry to see the fate of two great ships. Keep me posted if you find anything, good luck-
I would love to get a copy of any quality of the Brigantine Yankee in Europe. When they went through the Netherlands, they covered an event called "Fier Ljeppen" in which my great uncle Jetse Jorritsma participated. We saw him on TV back when, but were technology challenged and had no ability to record. It would be so cool to have the footage of just that one event . If you would, please reply to this post and let me know what I need to do to get things going that direction. Thanks! firstname.lastname@example.org
