ROCKLAND — Hear lecturer Tim Clark talk about his adventures as the ship’s carpenter on the Picton Castle.

This talk will take place Wednesday, Oct. 23, at 6 p.m., at The Apprenticeshop, in Rockland 

Clark worked on the Picton Castle from October 2015 to April 2016, sailing from Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, through the Azores, Madeira, Morocco, the Canary Islands, Senegal, Cape Verde, the Caribbean and Bermuda, before returning home to Lunenburg.

Clark is a professional shipwright who co-owns and operates Clark & Eisele Traditional Boatbuilding, LLC. He has been building and restoring wooden boats in boat shops, shipyards, and museums across New England for nearly two decades, and has also spent significant periods of time working aboard large, traditionally-rigged sailing vessels of many types, both as ship's carpenter and deck crew.

There is a suggested donation of $10 for entrance to the lecture.
