A presentation by Jenny and Nick Coghlan January 19th on their 2018 cruise up to Haida Gwaii was a resounding success attracting an audience of in excess of 50 members. Their well researched account of the cruise aboard their Robert Harris designed Vancouver 27 “Bosun Bird” was presented flawlessly, holding the audience spellbound with spectacular photographs of BC’s South and Central Coast and Haida Gwaii.
Segments of the Bill Reid narrated “Rescuing the Timeless Totems of SGang Gwaii”, a CBC documentary depicting the controversial salvaging of totem poles at a deserted Haida Gwaii settlement, was fascinating and can be viewed here https://www.cbc.ca/player/play/1659728755.
The presentation was first in a series of presentations and working group sessions supporting the anticipated Cruise to Haida Gwaii summer 2019.
A very special thank you to both Nick and Jenny for their wonderful presentation, as well as to Lynn and Michael Clark for all of their help.
