Labor Day Speaker Sail with Jeremy D’Entremont

Come join us Monday Sept 4 onboard the gundalow for a talk by Lighthouse Historian Jeremy D’Entremont.  The sail leaves from Prescott Park at 5:00 and we will visit two of New Hampshire’s historic lighthouses.

On this evening’s cruise, Jeremy will recap the fascinating history of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse in New Castle, New Hampshire, and Whaleback Lighthouse in Kittery, Maine. He will also discuss Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouses’ extensive restoration work on both lighthouses, and the plans for a new docking system at Whaleback. He will tell about the fascinating human history of lighthouse keepers and their families, and he might even include a ghost story or two.
