Before Joseph Conrad wrote novels, he sailed merchant ships. The only ship he captained was the Otago, the remains of which lie on the banks of the Rivert Derwent in Tasmania, only 20 minutes out from Hobart. On the anniversary of his death in 1924, fans of Conrad's work continue to gather around the remains of the Otago to pay homage to him.
