Ladysmith Maritime Society: Talks on the Dock
February 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Ladysmith Maritime Society (LMS) is pleased to host another year of Talks on the Dock starting off 2018 with a Talk by author, humorist and sailor, Catherine Dook.
Dook’s talk, “Anchoring in the Gulf Islands”, will take place at the Welcome Centre, located on the Ladysmith Community Marina dock.
John and Catherine Dook are live aboards and philosophers, but they are not very good boaters. Enjoy Catherine’s stories of meandering around the Gulf Islands dispensing engine exhaust and blackberry jam, catching mooring buoys and colliding with docks, and discovering the meaning of life among the salal and seaweed. Or not.
Enjoy hearing of Catherine’s fish-flavoured and wonderful live aboard neighbours. Ask, as Catherine does, why George of the Snowy Beard feeds crows, wonder how to get on Tuula’s soup list, and consider how much cast-iron cookware Erik can fit on his float home.
There is satisfaction in boating, and some joy, but only if your anchor doesn’t drag.
Coffee and treats will be served after the presentation. Books will be available for purchase. (three have been nominated for the Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humour)
Free event and open to all!
