Learn about restoration of historic yacht

The Friends of the Jamestown Library's second lecture of the Sailing Series will be held tonight - Thursday, March 9 - at 7:30 p.m. The talk will feature Susan Daly of the International Yacht Restoration School who will bring to life the background of the yacht "Coronet," the last remaining American schooner yacht of her kind.

Built in 1885, the 133-foot schooner yacht Coronet is a magnificent example from the great age of yachting. The yacht's remarkable record of ownership and her extensive voyaging make her a historic vessel of unique and international significance. The International Yacht Restoration School (IYRS) is restoring Coronet. Learn to knit socks at library

A class in how to knit handmade socks will run for three consecutive Sundays at the library.

The first session is March 12 from 2:30 to 4 p.m.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Jamestown Library, the class will feature knitting instructor Nancy Mowbray, who will lead the group through casting on using double pointed needles, to turning a heel, to forming the toe. The cost of the three classes is $15. Pre-registration is required and payment is required at the time of registration.

Knitters will need to bring yarn for their project and appropriately sized double pointed needles. Various patterns to accommodate different yarn weights will be provided.
