On Sunday, March 24 Don Wilding spoke to a sold out room! Noted historian, author and filmmaker Don Wilding gave his presentation of some of the greatest shipwrecks and rescues of Cape Cod’s outer beaches. His talk narrowws in on the earliest days of the U.S. Lifesaving Service (1872) to the early years of the U.S. Coast Guard in the first half of the 20th century, focusing on notorious shipwrecks including the Italian bark Castagna (1914), the Canadian schooner Montclair (1927), and the British ship Jason (1893), in which 25 men perished.
We have invited Don back for an encore performance in the Fall. Be sure to check back on our Events Calendar to see when he will return!
The weekend of March 22-24 the Cape Cod Maritime participated in the annual Boat Builders Show at the Hyannis Resort and Conference Center. The days were filled with lively conversations, not only with attendees but with participating vendors as well. A ticket to the show also included admission to the museum so attendees had a chance to not only learn about everything the museum is doing this season but then could go and visit and experience the museum itself. We were excited to meet each and everyone who came and learned a great deal about the passion we all share with boat building!
We will be participating again at the 2020 Boat Builders Show and hope that if you missed it this year you come next year! We’ll be waiting for you!
