All In with Pauline Hawkins
Captain LeCain W. Smith grew up by Perkins Cove in Ogunquit. He started sailing out of Perkins Cove as a child and ran away to sea in his early twenties. In addition to teaching sailing, marine weather, and navigation, his skills in marine trades grew to include: boat building, repairing, surveying, delivering, and chartering sailboats in southern Maine, Key West, and Port Townsend, WA. While in Port Townsend, he was Harbormaster of the Wooden Boat Festival for six years. He talks about his father’s sea stories, his first voyage to the Caribbean on a little 24-foot cutter, and his book “Our Inner Ocean: A World of Healing Modalities.”
Three songs on the soundtrack of his life: 1st song: “Greensleaves” by Jethro Tull; 2nd song: Blow the Man Down”; and 3rd song: “The Sloop John B” by the Beach Boys.
