Chatham resident Bob Ryder talks about his book, "Voyages From Chatham," and the stories about his life on the water, as a child, teenager, a husband and father. He shares the successes, the failures, the bitter, the sweet, and the lessons learned along the way.
Bob was born on Cape Cod in 1941, to a family of lifelong seafarers. He attended Chatham School - all twelve grades in one building - graduated in 1959 and happily joined the U.S. Coast Guard. After five memorable years of service without a single day at sea, he returned to Chatham and began his commercial fishing career as a crewman. Join us for a feel good lecture and hear about his many adventures at sea.
