Sea State Lecture: Jonathan White

Tides: The Science and Spirit of the Ocean
Jonathan White, Author and Conservationist
March 2nd, 2017
After nearly losing his 65 foot wooden schooner in a large Alaskan tide, writer, sailor, and surfer Jonathan White vowed to understand the tide. He knew the moon had something to do with it, but what exactly? Two books turned into ten, and ten into three hundred - and ten years of research crisscrossing the seven seas in a search for the largest, fastest, scariest, and most amazing tides in the world. With photographs, stories, and short readings, Jonathan takes his audiences on an enthralling journey into the surprising and poetic workings of the tide.
