The Accidental Sailor - Storytelling by Nelson Simon

When Nelson Simon signed up as a last minute crew member to transport a Norwegian schooner from Brooklyn to Bermuda, he pictured it as a sort of pleasure cruise. Instead, he found himself fighting for survival in the midst of what became known as "The Perfect Storm."
Join us as Nelson recounts his harrowing tale that began with a friendly invitation to sail on board the Anne Kristine and ended in the dead of night in a Coast Guard helicopter high above an angry sea.

Tickets are $25 and a reception will follow.
