Have you ever wondered what life is like on Greenland? Here’s your chance to find out!
Sunday, November 17, 2:00 – 4:00 pm -- Yacht designer and former Cape Cod Maritime Museum president Bill Cook will give a talk and show a video of his 2010 voyage to Greenland. With several friends, he sailed his 56’ sloop Resolution to the south coast of the world’s largest island, a spectacular mountainous shore that The Lonely Planet Guide has described as “something out of a Tolkien fantasy.”
