This is the song that documents Collective Spirit's journey to, and arrival in Portsmouth. Along the way, we encounter a loose jib-sheet, 25 knot winds, choppy seas, a songwriter lying face down in the open transom trying to free a stuck engine bracket and a welcome of a 600 strong choir and 3000 waving people into the city.


from The Ship's Log, released April 11, 2012
written and performed by Johny Lamb. Featuring the voices of Boat Captain Mike Barham and Portsmouth Harbour control.
