Captain Jonathan Boulware, Executive Director of the Seaport Museum, is an enthusiastic advocate for the contemporary relevance of New York’s maritime history. A passionate educator, Capt. Boulware will spin the tale of the 1885 full-rigged ship Wavertree, a circumnavigator herself, and put the ship and the recently completed $13M restoration in the context of modern New York. Part autobiography of his time at sea, part storytelling, and part maritime history, Capt. Boulware’s presentation will leave guests with a newfound appreciation of the life of the ship Wavertree and the importance of the South Street Seaport to modern New York City. The evening will begin with a guided tour of the ship at Pier 16 in the East River, including key aspects of current restoration. Please wear practical shoes (no heels) and plan for steep ladders and stairs. Meet at Wavertree’s gangway on Pier 16 itself.
Come join fellow Circumnavigators and friends for this terrific event!

The Last Shot
In the next month, many Circumnavigator “snow birds” will leave the north and head for warmer climes. This glorious sunset was shot at the home of Naples Chapter member Pat Classen and beckons us to Florida. The Naples Chapter held its end-of-summer retreat, with 68 members attending.
Luck to you!
