Friends of Clermont Lecture, “Tales of the Majestic Hudson”, Apr 28

Hudson River
The Friends of Clermont presents the Lecture – “Tales of the Majestic Hudson” with U.S. Coast Guard Licensed Master Capt. Stanley Wilcox.

The Hudson River has been compared to the Rhine in both beauty and in the variety of vistas. Come join us for this special presentation where Capt. Stan will explore some of the often unknown and unique features of the Hudson Valley and uncover a mystery or two. You will find out how a glacier shaped the valley and turned the river into an estuary, the fate of Henry Hudson, the search for Blackbeard’s pirate gold and so much more!

Capt. Stan has been on the river for over 30 years and holds a Coast Guard Masters License. He serves as Senior Captain on the Spirit of Hudson and is co-author of Capt. Stan’s Hudson River Book. He teaches “Hudson River Boating and Seamanship” at Columbia-Greene Community College each winter and is guest speaker on American Cruise Lines.

Signed copies of Captain Stan’s book will be available after the lecture.
