Avid sailor to discuss history of sailing ships

A former OCC president and avid sailor will present “A Visual History of Sailing Ships — and Those Adventurers Who Sailed in Them” in a lecture Thursday sponsored by the Newport Harbor Nautical Museum.

Dave Grant, now president of the Orange Coast College Foundation, has sailed the South Pacific on his 28 sloop, sailed in the Sydney to Hobart and TransPac yacht races, and spent time at Cape Horn and South Georgia Island.

The event, part of the museum’s Waterman Lecture Series, will be at from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday at Harborside Restaurant, 400 Main St. Tickets are $10 for members or $35 for non-members, who will receive a one-year membership. Students with valid ID pay $5. To reserve a seat, call (949) 675-8915, or e-mail rsvp@nhnm.org.
