Get Set for the Annual Meeting

Our Annual Meeting will be held on Friday, May 17 at the Yale Club in New York. Please join us for this important event which will feature our annual business meeting, followed by a luncheon and a presentation. Our speaker will be Circumnavigator Jim Foster who will discuss the Magellan Project, a monumental recreation of Magellan’s attempt to circumnavigate 500 years ago. The presentation is guaranteed to be informative and entertaining.

This is a picture of the statue of Fernao de Magalhães, aka Magellan, erected by the Chilean government in Lisbon, Portugal in 1960 to commemorate the 500 year anniversary of the death of Prince Henry the Navigator. This is the only statue of Magellan in Lisbon. There are none in Spain. The great Renaissance mariner stands with dignified obscurity in the statue rich world of Portugal and Spain. The nuanced grudge drama that is the Magellan story, helps keep this intriguing narrative hiding in plain site to the present day.
