Sea Capt. Ryder to tell of ‘Voyages from Chatham’ at the AtwoodName: Sea Capt. Ryder to tell of ‘Voyages from Chatham’ at the AtwoodDate: March 18, 2018Website: http://chathamhistoricalsociety.org/Event Description:
Capt. Bob Ryder will talk about “Voyages from Chatham,” his memoir about a life lived on the water, as a child, a teenager, a husband and father at the Sunday Lecture at the Atwood House & Museum, 2:00 p.m. on March 18. He will share it all: the successes, the failures, the bitter, the sweet, and the lessons learned along the way. From Chatham to Nova Scotia to the Panama Canal, to California and back again, Ryder encountered sharks, fire, sinkings and hypothermia. He will describe record catches, pet-able whales, moonlight miracles and a solar eclipse. Through it all, one constant prevailed: the camaraderie shared by men who give their lives, and their hearts, to the sea.
The Atwood House & Museum is located at 347 Stage Harbor Rd. Chatham. For details, visit www.chathamhistoricalsociety.com.
