Sea Song of the Week: Calypso

This week’s Sea Song, John Denver’s tribute to Jacques-Yves Cousteau, was recommended by a friend on our FaceBook page.



Three facts about Calypso you may not have known:
  • Calypso was originally a British Navy mine sweeper in WWII.
  • She sank in 1996 in Singapore, a year before Jacques-Yves Cousteau died.
  • The ship is currently being restored by the Cousteau Society, of which you can become a card-carrying member
