about

Although frequently invaded by sea in earlier centuries, Yorkshire started to become increasingly adventurous itself in seafaring terms. For instance, in 18th C, James Cook, rose from humble Yorkshire origins to become a major figure in the Age of Discovery. He changed our maps, history and perception of the globe. During the Age of Discovery, particularly the 18th century, extensive overseas exploration became a powerful factor in the spread of European culture and globalisation. This opened up trading routes, and dispelled many myths about the earth, including the theory that it was flat.

lyrics

Prospects of Adventure
Music: Tim Hunter, lyrics: Frederick McKinnon.

Let Providence and Fortitude
Be the winds that fill my sails
To achieve my life’s ambition
And lead me on great missions

As a Yorkshire farm boy
Roseberry topping I would climb
To view the sea beyond the shore
Other worlds meant to find

As a toiling village shop lad
With a teeming ocean near
I’d sense a passion in my soul
As Sailor’s tales I’d hear

Now, it’s time to be master of my fate
On Whitby ships I’ll go
To sail the great North Sea
I’ll study seamanship and stars
There’s something calling me
Let Providence and Fortitude
Be the winds that fill my sails
To achieve my life’s ambition
And lead me on great missions

Life on the land is
not for me
I want to be free
I can see . . .
Prospects of Adventure

Let Providence and Fortitude
Be the winds that fill my sails
To achieve my life’s ambition
And lead me on great missions

Prospects of Adventure
