HELPED TO SAIL WINDJAMMER
ADELAIDE WOMAN RELATES
NEVER ONCE SEASICK
London. June 9.
Miss Agnes Sprod, of Adelaide, a sister of Dr. Milo Sprod, of Glenelg, and a daughter of the late Dr. John Sprod, was among: the four passen- gers oh the barque Viking. It left Port Victoria on February 7, and reached Queenstown after a voyage
of 122 days from Australia.
"Life aboard a sailer is quite dif- ferent from what I expected," said Miss Sprod. "It was so fine I was not once seasick. I ate every meal. I am sorry the weather enabled us to go by the Cape of Good Hope I wanted to go round Cape Horn."
A Finn, Miss Lena Ringborn, made the trip to gain sea experience, as she intends to take a master's certificate. Both she and Miss Sprod regularly
climbed aloft and assisted the crew in managing the sails.
The Viking is the fourth of the grain fleet to arrive. Captain Hager- strad said the passage from the Cape of Good Hope had been consistently fine. He is proceeding to Cardiff to discharge the cargo.
