Islands' Sounder


Life with Martha

February 16, 2013 · Updated 11:17 AM

Robert d’Arcy, captain and project manager for Martha’s restoration, will share stories of the history, rebuilding and racing career of this remarkable 106-year old schooner.

His talk is Sunday, Feb. 24, 4 p.m. at the Orcas Senior Center.

Martha is Washington state's oldest working sailboat, and serves as a sail training vessel when not winning races (first in her division and second overall in the Orcas Island Yacht Club 2012 Round the County race).

The program is a joint benefit for the Wooden Boat Society of the San Juan Islands and Sail Orcas. Admission is free but donations are welcome.

Refreshments will be served.
