Manry at Sea - Film Screening

Join us for an evening of adventure as we celebrate Robert Manry's 1965 solo sailing voyage across the Atlantic Ocean in a 13½ foot sloop! The event includes a special film screening of the new documentary “Manry at Sea: In the Wake of a Dream”, which features original recently developed footage shot by Manry while underway. The evening will be highlighted by a Q&A with film producer/director - Steve Wystrach, the remarkable small boat solo sailing pioneer – Howard Rice, and Robert Manry’s children - Robin and Doug. Tinkerbelle’s meticulously restored sister ship replica will be on display and will be christened by Robin and Doug Manry and launched at the Bayfront Maritime Center for the first time!
