As our Dana Point Harbor boating community has observed up close, our neighbor and partner
Ocean Institute has been hit hard this year by the coronavirus pandemic and the loss of our beloved Brig Pilgrim. Core to the Ocean Institute’s mission is to foster the next generation of mariners and ocean-minded citizens; in that regard, they align well with the values of your Dana Point Boaters Association and the community we serve.
Starting this evening at 6:00pm, the Ocean Institute will begin selling and auctioning artifacts from the wreck of the Pilgrim. As heartbreaking as it is to so many of us to see the Pilgrim in pieces, this auction will allow the beloved ship to live on among the community that adored her over so many years, as well as help the Ocean Institute endure the challenging circumstances they find themselves in. If you can, we urge you to consider participating in the auction and perhaps bring home an artifact to give continuing life to the Pilgrim with your family.

Thank you for your support.
