Black Yachting History: The Captain & The Commodore
Aemilius Jarvis' schooner "Haswell" at Royal Jamaica Yacht Club, where he met Culrose McLaughlin. (From “5,000 Miles in a 27-Tonner” by Aemilius Jarvis, 1921.) I've recently published two stories on Caymanian Captain Culrose McLaughlin and Canadian Commodore Aemilius Jarvis ; one in Skuttlebutt Sailing News , and the other on Black Ottawa Scene . From 1921 to 1951, McLaughlin went from mate on a Caribbean turtle schooner to captain in the U.S. Merchant Marine. He was mentored in Toronto by Jarvis from 1921 to 1925.
