Our guest speakers came all the way from MYSTIC SEAPORT, Conneticut. Mystic Seaport is a beautiful example of what is possible when everyone works together. They began their venture with a donation of two achres of land and a vision "to create a dynamic, educational institution to preserve America’s maritime culture and turn the achievements of a past era into an inspirational force for the future." Seventy -five years later Mystic Seaport is America's most successful maritime museum and educaitonal center.(http://www.mysticseaport.org) Our speaker gave us an idea of what it takes to create a lasting and viable maritime project of this scope. Sausalito's own PHIL FRANK presented an historical overview of the Sausalito waterfront and a panel of RBMA representatives were on hand to answer questions and encourage a free exchange of ideas..
Our first workshop spauned a number of other "mini-workshops" within our community . We have met with civic leaders, land owners and shipwrights who offer insights and ideas to further our cause. The RBMA is open to working with anyone whose purpose and goals are aligned with ours. Like to participate? ON-LINE SURVEY.
