Presenting: James Bender and Inka Petersen

"Exploring Maritime Traditions"

We are pleased to present James Bender, founder of the Adriatic Maritime Institute and Inka Petersen, former Spaulding youth boatbuilding coordinator and a Sausalito resident boat builder who recently returned from a residency with their boat building workshop near Split, Croatia.

The group has been building boats and sailing with students from state-run homes for children. Their program teaches seamanship, communication and cooperation while engaging in expeditions that combine elements of youth development with on-water training and boat building in Bosnia and Croatia.

Join us for a talk that will highlight these trips and exciting things they have accomplished.
