The Golden Rule: First Peace Vessel to Visit Sandusky
July 29 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join Golden Rule rebuilder, crew and board member Skip Oliver for a special presentation about the first peace vessel of the modern era ahead of its historic visit to Sandusky in August.
The 37-foot wooden ketch was built in 1958 in San Pedro, California and gained fame in the 1950s as four Quakers sailed her out toward the Marshall Islands in an effort to halt the atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons. After a long hiatus as a private vessel, she sank in a storm in Humboldt Bay, Calif., in 2010. Veterans For Peace raised her from the depths for a rebuild that was completed in 2015, and now she sails for peace once more, currently on the Great Loop around the Eastern US. The vessel is now in Toronto, Canada. Sandusky Sailing Club member Wm. Good is the First Mate
