In Frisco Bound Baines has been held responsible for the loss of the Pibroch and has to face a hearing. He is stripped of his captaincy for six months but James is keen to take him back as first mate. They have a journey planned taking the Charlotte Rhodes around the horn to San Francisco.

Onedin has a new apprentice, the spoilt son of Sir Walter Teal, the teenage David has a fancy for a life at sea but hasn’t reckoned on such a dangerous first voyage and the fact that Baines has a grudge against him thanks to the fact that his father presided over the hearing that saw him lose his captaincy.
