All Hands on Deck: Life at Sea - A Newport Historical Society Zoom Panel
What’s life like at sea…is it any different today than it was in the past? On Thursday April 20, 2023 at 5:30pm, the Newport Historical Society will host the Zoom discussion "All Hands on Deck: Life at Sea" with a panel of experts who merge the present and past on the water. Panelists will discuss what it’s like working on historical vessels, wearing authentic historical clothing, and training for this physical experience. The conversation will be moderated by the NHS Executive Director Becca Bertrand and Heather Ruhsam, Newport Sailing Museum’s Executive Director.

The panelists are: Will Soffrin, author of the highly anticipated book "All Hands on Deck"; Adam Hodges-LeClaire, a living historian who sailed across the Atlantic on the French frigate Hermione; Andrew J. Lyter, a museum professional who focuses on early American naval and maritime life; and Lyle J. Goldstein a Brown University professor by day who trains a team of sailors each summer to recreate the 1777 Barton’s Raid.
