Arrr matey! Here be some fine Captains!

Every good crew needs a good leader. A leader who can make the hard call, bring a team together, and step up to the cause when needed. Throughout history we have witnessed real-life & fictional captains take to the sea, the skies, and even SPACE to inspire us and steer us on to glory! This week join Tuong La and First Mates Sarah Ghadbane, Angus MacDonald, and Laura Gordon as they sail the seven seas to celebrate the Top 5 Best Captains!

Ground Rules

  • Can be fictional or real historical captains
  • If a character has not been referred to a captain but has that position, then they are a Captain
  • If a character is simply referred to as a captain then it counts
  • If they have the official rank and title of a captain then it counts
  • If they have “captain” in their name it counts
  • If they are in charge of a “crew” then they are most likely a captain
