Program:
The restorers of two historic sailing vessels that now call Dana Point Harbor home will tell us about their 1920s schooners — Robert Harrison’s Curlew and Rick Brown’s Charmian. Each boat has a fascinating story that will intrigue you. The Curlew won many races along the east coast, served both as a Merchant Marine Academy and Coast Guard training ship during WWII and had many adventures since then. This sailboat is now listed on the Historic Register. The Charmain is a Seawanhaka schooner, built in Maine along with a number of others for the members of the NY Yacht Club. They were known as “Gentleman’s Schooners” and were furnished with silver and crystal service, and had the owner’s burgee enameled on the porcelain. It, too, has a long history to be told.
