• Captains

    The 'City', as she was affectionately known in her hey day, had several masters in her lifetime at sea. But hers is an unusual tale, because the captaincy of this vessel was something of a family affair, both the original master and two of his sons captained the City of Adelaide during her busiest trading years.

    We have collected much information relating to these fine men of the sea. Take a while to learn more about them.

    As always, if you have photos or diaries or any other information that helps us to know more about these fine captains, please Contact Us.
