June 18th at 9:30am: Walking Tour to Brown's Island
Marblehead Mariners: From Kayakers to Lobstermen & "Ghosts of the Past"

Mark Sherf guides a walking tour to Brown’s Island in Little Harbor. At low tide, we'll hike over an exposed sandbar, trail the island’s woods,
and enjoy spectacular 360-degree views of the open ocean. We will retrace a harrowing kayak paddle that nearly ended in disaster last
May, 2021 at nearby Coney Island in Salem Sound.

The tour will continue along Front Street to a small alcove between the Commercial Street dock and the Marblehead Yacht Club overlooking
the harbor and relive tales of rescues and sunken ships during the October, 2021 Nor’easter with winds of up to 90 MPH.

Chapters from Mark Sherf’s kayak memoirs recounting these events will be distributed ahead of the tour.

Parking will be available at the Old North Church.

The tour will conclude with a nosh on the deck of the Dolphin Yacht Club. Seating is limited.
