Classic Yacht Symposium; Ghost Ships Festival

Kelly at Maritime Compass notes that the New England Section of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers and the Herreshoff Marine Museum in Bristol, Rhode Island will host the 2006 Classic Yacht Symposium March 31- April 2. The program includes a keynote by venerated yacht designer Olin J. Stephens II, the restorations of Alera, a Herreshoff, New York 30; Cangarda, the last of the American-built Edwardian-era steam yachts; the Peggy Bawn, a fully restored 1894 George L. Watson small fast cruiser; and the 1925 motor launch Corsair. Folks interested in classic yachts in the Pacific Northwest should contact the the Classic Yacht Association and the Pacific Northwest chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society.

The blog Divestor posted an entry about the 2006 Great Lakes Ghost Ships Festival March 24th and 25th in Milwaukee. The seventh annual event is devoted to Great Lakes’ scuba diving, the lakes' maritime history, and the estimated 900 sunken ships in the area.
