The rookie

The rookie is a well known figure in the stories about life at sea. Young men from the coastal towns and from the rural areas signed on for a job at sea. The Whaling Museum aims at highlighting the stories from the rookies, their experiences and reasons for choosing to go to sea. What was life like as a 15 year old first-timer in the company of the old hands?

If you went to sea as a young man – on a whaler or a commercial ship – or know someone who did, the museum would appreciate your contact.
