Michael Pregot, local author of “Sea Captains of Cape Cod”, presents a lecture, exploring the connection that each Cape Cod town has to the sea as demonstrated through its seafaring residents. His book provides a glimpse into heroic maritime adventures, entrepreneurial brilliance, and an appreciation of the resolve needed by captains to thrive in a hostile seaside environment. Maritime figures take several forms such as distinguished fishermen, military war heroes, deep-sea merchants, local coasters, packet boat captains, whalers, ship architects, luxury passenger liner magnets, and even “mooncussers” prowling along the coastline for treasure.
