A documentary on the yacht Westward’s remarkable history has been in the works for the past few years; now complete, the film provides a wonderful record of Westward’s extraordinary provenance, history & accomplishments over the 85 years since her launching in 1924.
The “Premier” of “Westward in the 21st Century” has been set for March 19th, 2009 in Seattle as a benefit for Seattle’s Center for Wooden Boats. View the Announcement Here. The announcement includes a delightful clip from the film, viewed by “clicking” on the antique photo of Westward.
A full description of the film can be found at the Producer’s website: http://www.johnsabella.com/detail.lasso?title=50100 ——where those unable to attend the March 19th Premier can order a copy of the DVD.
We hope that you will join us, and Westward, on March 19th at the Naval Armory on Lake Union.
