Title: Lecture with Michael Tougias Co-Author Of The Book: "The Finest Hours"
Contact: ,
Location: Zoom
Description:
On February 18, 1952, an astonishing maritime event began when a ferocious nor’easter split in half a 500-foot-long oil tanker one mile off the coast of Cape Cod. Incredibly, twenty miles away, another oil tanker split in half. On both tankers, men were trapped in sinking in 60-foot seas. Michael Tougias, co-author of the book and Disney movie The Finest Hours will take us through this harrowing tale of the rescue efforts amid towering waves, blinding snow and the most dangerous shoals in the world.
