This year’s series of four lectures begins 7:30 tonight, February 23rd, in the Museum Theater with former New Bedford Mayor, John Bullard, presenting “Two Voyages North”.
President of the Sea Education Association (SEA), John Bullard has sailed and raced extensively. In 2007 he sailed on SEA’s research vessel, Corwith Cramer, from Bermuda north to Nova Scotia and then joined Ned Cabot’s Ceilita for a trip from the Shetland Islands to Svalbard, passing north of 80° latitude. John will focus his discussion on these two voyages and will share his experiences of climate change, remote places, science, and adventure through engaging stories and striking photography.
