Talk Nautical Women, The Hidden History of Women sailing the High Seas

February 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Full info here. Author Rosemary Caldicott will be telling us about her book in which she investigated the intriguing histories of nautical women. These include stories of cross-dressing women who went to sea to earn a living and the mad, tragic and often funny consequences they encountered and endured. Living in or near Bristol, we’re all quite familiar with images of sailing ships – but the focus is usually on the men who built or worked on them. Rosemary wants to bring to life a forgotten history – women sailors and the women of sailor towns.
