Talk on sailing and ship building
Peter Falus will give a talk Thursday, March 8, about sailing, racing sailboats and ship building.
The free talk, titled “Sailing Through the Ages,” will be at the Community Center, 408 N. Alister, at 7 p.m. This presentation is another talk in the H.E.L.P. series on health, ecology, lifestyle and preparation by the City of Port Aransas Parks and Recreation Department.
Falus is a retired architect who, as a teenager, spent a few years on a square-rigged sailing ship in the North Sea off Norway.
He has raced sailboats on the open ocean, and has been involved in the reconstruction of traditional ships as a hobby all his life.
As a skilled draftsman, Falus created drawings to show how the ‘Tina’ was put together for the Port Aransas Museum. The ‘Tina’ is a restored Farley boat.
He is involved at the museum annex, the Farley Boat Works, with a boat-building class.
