In commemoration of the building of the Matthew Turner, the first Brigantine ship to be built in California in 100 years. This ship will have a permanent home on our Bay Model pier. This program will cover some of the interesting early sailing vessels that made their way in and around the SF Bay Estuary along with a bit of maritime history to include the ever present danger of shipwrecks. Bring some stories to share!
