JOIN US ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Lecture: Thursday, April 18th: "Human Exploration of the Deep Sea: a History of 20th and 21st Century Deep Ocean Exploration" presented by Mike CoffinThe average depth of the global ocean is ~3,700 meters (2.3 miles). Human exploration of the deep ocean commenced in the 1930s, and humans visited the deepest location in the ocean, Challenger Deep at ~11,000 meters (6.8 miles), aboard the bathyscaphe Trieste in 1960. Only five countries – China, France, Japan, Russia, and the USA – have developed research submersibles capable of taking humans to depths greater than 4,000 meters (2.5 miles), and only four of these countries currently operate submersibles capable of reaching those depths. Over the past decade, two submersibles have been developed by two high net worth individuals to reach the greatest ocean depths, and both have visited Challenger Deep. Only in June 2020 did the number of people visiting Challenger Deep exceed the number of people who’ve walked on the Moon. The talk will recount the history of 20th and 21st century deep ocean exploration via human-occupied vehicles, including the presenter’s experience aboard Japan’s Shinkai 6500, capable of diving to 6,500 meters (4 miles), as well as the recent tragedy near the Titanic.THURSDAY, APRIL 18Begins at 7pm, EasternIn-Person Reception at 6pmIn-Person Tickets:Members: $15Non-Members: $20Virtual Tickets:Members: $10Non-Members: $15Get tickets: buff.ly/3hNlzSg#Herreshoff #DeepSea #OceanExploration #TITANIC #OceanGate #MarineBiology #BristolRI ...

Thinking of warmer days like this one. Captain Nat poses with his daysailer PLEASURE (HMCo. #907) on the ways at his winter residence in Coconut Grove, FL sometime between 1925 and 1928. This was Captain Nat’s last single-hander, and he cruised in PLEASURE for a number of years when he was in his late 70s. Today, PLEASURE is part of the HMM collection and can be viewed on display in the Hall of Boats at the Herreshoff Marine Museum, thanks to the generosity of the Yaro family, her last private owners.
