John Kerr    “Dreamers Before the Mast:  The History of the Tall Ship Regina Maris” 

The tall ship Regina Maris, built in 1908, had several adventures and incarnations - carrying cargo in the Baltic Sea, rounding Cape Horn, cruising French Polynesia, surviving two hurricanes, and serving as an oceanographic research vessel.  John Kerr, who crewed on the ship, will recount the epic story of the Regina Maris and the people who built, owned and loved her as told in his detailed and well documented book.
