Schooner Fame Virtual Sail
September 25 @ 4:30 pm - 4:45 pm
Join us for a 15-minute Virtual Sail! With the schooner under way in Salem Sound, we’ll visit with the crew as they “hand, reef, and steer” our re-creation of the 1812 privateer FAME, which captured the first British prizes of the war. Captain and crew will describe how they’re handling the tiller, trimming the sails to catch the wind, tacking (or gybing) the vessel, and firing the cannon! — Wait, firing a cannon? What was a privateer, anyway? Tune in on Sept. 25 and find out! Please note: This virtual event is weather permitting.
