Voyages to Greenland: A Lecture by Bill Cook
On Sunday, March 10 at 2:00 pm, as part of the Museum’s Sunday Lecture Series, Bill Cook will speak about and show a video of his voyage to Greenland in 2010. With several friends, he sailed his 56′ sloop Resolution to the south coast of the world’s largest island, a spectacularly mountainous shore that The Lonely Planet Guide has described as “something out of a Tolkein fantasy.”
Bill is a yacht designer living in Barnstable, and a former president of the Cape Cod Maritime Museum. His designs range from a 10′ frostbite dinghy to an 85′ world champion maxi. Bill has sailed over most of the North Atlantic, including one liveaboard year in Western Europe, the Mediterranean and Caribbean. In recent years, he has sailed to Labrador four times, Baffin Island once, and Greenland twice.
