Islandman

Islandman

An insight into the life of Johnny Bailey, who sails a traditional working craft known as a Galway Hooker, " An Capall", which was built in 1841. Johnny describes his life and his relationship with basking sharks, seals, and gannets. An Capall still sails to the Aran Islands, but nowadays the boats have a new life and are used for racing rather than for carrying goods.
