Trem on the Charles River, Boston
In early October, the lateen-rigged Balancelle Espagnole TREM delighted new crews of Boston locals on the Charles River. Just a century and a half earlier, her type would have been seen transporting oranges and cork or perhaps smuggling arms off the Mediterranean shores of Spain, France and Italy.
The Tremolino, which is believed by many to be Conrad’s autobiographical sea story of first love, and first betrayal, is described as Conrad's “initiation into a life of passion.”
TREM was built and launched in Maine in 2008 by Brady Gow.
This free sailing event, along with a short slide show presentation by Lance Lee, was hosted graciously by Community Boating, Inc.
