The Finest Hours: The True Story Behind the U.S. Coastguard's Most Daring Sea Rescue
Wednesday, July 15
7pm
On February 18, 1952, an astonishing maritime event began when a ferocious nor'easter split in half a 500-foot long oil tanker, the Pendleton, approximately one mile off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Incredibly, just twenty miles away, a second oil tanker, the Fort Mercer, also split in half.
Michael Tougias, co-author of the book The Finest Hours , uses slides to illustrate the harrowing tale of the rescue efforts amidst towering waves and blinding snow in one of the most dangerous shoals in the world.
