Join the National Maritime Historical Society for a viewing of the Ghosts of Cape Horn, an enthralling documentary by James R. Donaldson, III about seafaring in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and the hearty, windswept crews who sailed the infamous route from New York to San Francisco. Peter Stanford, NMHS President Emeritus, founder and first president of South Street Seaport Museum, served as a writer and consultant in the production of Ghosts of Cape Horn and will provide his personal behind-the-scenes account of the making of this powerful film.
Walter Cronkite said of this film, “Put on your body-and-soul lashings and prepare for something different in Ghosts of Cape Horn. This is the true wine from man's greatest sea adventure, the endeavor to get round Cape Horn under sail."
Join Us! The Public is invited! Please contact the National Maritime Historical Society at 914-737-7878, ext. 0, if you plan to attend. Or you may RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
