The Bedford Lyceum presents – “A Sailing Voyage to Greenland (and Back)” with Dr. Timothy Allen

November 13 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Please join us for this free Zoom presentation:

In July 2022, Tim joined the crew of the sailboat Felicity to sail from Conception Bay, Newfoundland, to Nuuk, Greenland.  Arrangements to leave the boat in Nuuk until next year fell apart, and they ended up sailing the boat back to Lewisporte, Newfoundland.  A year ago, Tim helped sail Felicity from Boothbay Harbor, Maine, up to Newfoundland, in preparation for this Greenland voyage.

 

Dr. Timothy Allen works as an independent contractor for Relion in Bedford, MA, manufacturer of a scientific instrument that uses an electron beam to make rocks light up for petrographic analysis. Previously he was on the faculty at Keene State College for 29 years as a professor of Geology and Environmental Studies. He has a B.A. in Geological Sciences from Harvard College, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Geology from Dartmouth College. In addition to this trip to Greenland, Tim has raced his own sailboat single-handed from Newport, RI, to Bermuda, and double-handed back to Newport, among many other offshore sailing adventures. He lives in Antrim, NH, with his dog Layla.
