This Saturday, a crew of concerned citizens of Massachusetts and the greater maritime world are getting together to share their ideas about what might be the future of a ship that has more lives than a cat and more sea stories than a sailor. The schooner Ernestina is in dire need of help and if you are in the greater New Bedford area and care about America’s rich maritime heritage, you should attend and participate.
The event is being held on Saturday, October 30th, 2010 from 9 AM to 4 PM at the New Bedford Whaling Museum. Pre-registration is requested. Visit the Sail Ernestina website for more information.

This week, I’m dedicating a boatload of posts to the amazing Ernestina. If you want to guest post, let me know.
