DAMN THE PETTICOATS! Female Mariners in the Days of Sail

WITH HISTORIAS & CIMM DOCENTS, JIM KOSINSKI & MARTINA MELERO

Queens commanded fleets, female tars climbed the foremast, mistresses in disguise, pirate queens took charge and whaling wives longed for home. Learn why these women chose to risk their lives in a man’s domain and cast their fates to the wind.

Speaker Series is a lecture series held every third Wednesday at the Channel Islands Maritime Museum. Refreshments are served at 6:30 pm and the lecture begins at 7:00 pm. Entry is free with CIMM membership, $7 for non-members, $5 for seniors.
