Join us for a riveting slide show by Michael Tougias on Thursday, September 14 at 6:30 PM “The Finest Hours: the true story of the U.S. Coast Guard’s Most Daring Rescue”
On February 18th, 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.
This compelling, unbelievable true story was made into a movie in 2016 starring Chris Pine and Casey Affleck.
