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.
