Crossjack is the name of a small sail at the mizzen mast. It is used to hold a course and this five piece Shanty Crew aim to do just that. They sing traditional sea shanties, unaccompanied, as they would have been sung in the days of sail and they are keen to authentically reproduce the sounds that would have been heard aboard the tall ships as the work was carried out. Crossjack have performed at many maritime festivals in their native Germany and abroad and we are pleased to welcome them back to Harwich
