Join Cortes Island Museum for a presentation Square Sails and Penguins – a South Atlantic Voyage with Hubert Havelaar on Saturday, November 26, in Manson’s Hall.
Born on a barge in Holland, Hubert has had a life-long interest in and involvement with boats and the marine world. He has a successful career in custom house design and construction, but seizes every opportunity to go sailing and cruising along the B.C. coast with his wife Wendy.
In early March 2016, Hubert boarded a 105 year old square-rigged sailing ship in southern Chile for a voyage to South Africa via Antarctica, South Georgia and Tristan da Cunha.
Hubert’s presentation will take you along his two-month, 5500 nautical mile adventure across the notorious South Atlantic Ocean.
All are invited. Refreshments will be available.
Door opens at 7:00 pm. Presentation starts at 7:30.
Admission by donation.
