5:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Please join us for an evening presentation by special guest Captain Frank Blair, who will share his story: 13 Things I Learned Circumnavigating in the Southern Hemisphere
In 2005, Captain Blair built the 63-foot wooden schooner, Maggie B., and set sail (with an all-volunteer crew) on an incredible two-year journey. His book, The Schooner Maggie B., is about a great success: a sailor’s dream voyage well executed. Captain Blair will share tales of all the apprehensions and joys of the 38,000 nautical mile blue water passage.
