Our next presentation of the season will be held at Buckalew’s on Friday evening, February 18.
The topic will be Britannic: The Story of Titanic’s Sister.
H.M.H.S. Britannic, sister to Titanic, was one of the largest ships of her day. She was converted to a hospital ship in WWI and sank after she struck a mine in the Kea Channel, Greece. Today, she lies in 400 feet of water. In May of 2019, 10 divers set out to explore Britannic and made six dives to her in spectacular conditions. They also made an important archeological discovery, the ship’s long-lost bell. Joe Mazraani and Jennifer Sellitti, diver and support team member from the May 2019 expedition, will tell Britannic’s story through the eyes of those who traveled aboard her on her fatal voyage. They will also share stories, photos, and videos of the May 2019 expedition.
Complimentary hors d’oeuvre and happy hour drink prices are available starting at 6 pm, and the talk will begin at 7 pm, as is usual. Reservations are required, and a $10 donation will be collected at the door to offset our expenses.
Active members will have until February 10th to reserve a seat for this presentation, after which date non-members may reserve any remaining seats.
