President Jeff Fischbeck thanks Dr. Ashley

We were treated at breakfast this morning to a terrific presentation by Dr. Ray Ashley, President/CEO of the Maritime Museum of San Diego.  He shared the details of his extensive research on schooners … what they are, where the name came from, their development over time, uses over their fairly recent history, and the many variations that exist.  Additional information was presented regarding the resounding success of the museum’s replica of explorer Juan Cabrillo’s ship, San Salvador, which in 1542 landed the first Europeans to set foot in what is now the West Coast of the United States, right here in Point Loma at Ballast Point.  We thanked Dr. Ashley and hope he will return for future updates of the Museum’s many achievements.
