Sea Fever: BALCLUTHA and the Sunset of the Age of Sail
Come join Ranger Erin Conner as she tells the tale of the role women played in the life of the Balclutha and other ships in the waning days of sail. Hear about Rose Kissinger, often neglected from the early history the Balclutha, Joan Lowell, a silent film star who fabricated a memoir about her time at sea- yet still managed to snow some old timers on the Balclutha, Elisabeth Jacobsen, a typist for Alan Villiers, who ended up falling in love with the sea and sailing as an apprentice and Annette Brock Davis, whose intention was to get a mate’s ticket and have a commercial maritime career–and she almost managed it, until her marriage was revealed.

Chantey Sing Saturday March 3: Come and join in the fun, bring your own sea songs or come to learn a few and join in the choruses.

On board the ferryboat Eureka, first Saturdays of every month 8:00-midnight, rain or shine, for over 25 years now.
