Ray Ashley, Executive Director of the Maritime Museum of San Diego, will discuss the Spanish Galleon San Salvador–its historic construction, recent launch in San Diego Bay, and future sailing plans at a special ticketed Wine & Lecture THIS FRIDAY, September 25.

CHA’s Executive Director Bruce Linder has written a book about the San Salvador galleon on behalf of the Maritime Museum. Copies of his book will be available for sale & signing after the lecture.

Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo’s San Salvador was the ship that brought the first Europeans to Coronado in 1542. A replica of the galleon has been constructed over the past four and a half years by workers and volunteers of the Maritime Museum.

San Salvador is a historically-accurate, full-scale replica of the original ship, and this is the first time in 400 years that such a galleon has sailed. Best of all, she will be operating right here from San Diego Bay!

Now that the construction of the San Salvador is complete, it has been launched and is fitting out, discover what lies ahead for her in this special Wine & Lecture at CHA.

Learn about upcoming “voyages of discovery” on the ship’s full-size replica–exciting trips to retrace Cabrillo’s 1542 expedition up the California coast–or daily sails that anyone can join.

Lecture begins at 5:30 p.m., with a hosted reception featuring light hors d’oeuvres, wine and beer. Lecture begins at 6 p.m., followed by Q & A. Tickets are $15 for CHA members; $20 for non-members.

Seating is limited; CHA’s last ticketed Wine & Lecture event sold out. To purchase tickets CLICK HERE or call 435-7242.
