Fair Winds and Following Seas


Date:  Sunday, March 17, 2024
Time: 2:00 pm
Place: The Waterworks
              (184 San Marco Ave., St. Augustine)



Did you ever want to run away to sea and experience the magic, mystery and beauty of the briny depths? Or spend time sailing to romantic ports of call in the Caribbean, South Pacific, Atlantic Ocean and, yes, even the Inland Seas? Join sailors and storytellers Chris Kastle and Ted Miller as they swap personal stories and songs of their adventures at sea.

Chris Kastle is an award winning storyteller, songsmith and author who crewed aboard schooners on the Great Lakes where she was also an environmental educator. Chris was the Co-founder of the Chicago Maritime Festival as well as The Great Lakes Whale Watch.

Ted Miller retired from a 30 year career as a software developer with IBM to passionately embrace a new lifestyle as a live-aboard cruising sailor with wild plans to circumnavigate the seven seas. A wealth of varied adventures during his 13 years of cruising provides many sea stories he loves to share.

Colorful stories of women’s history, created and told by award winning storytellers Natalie Beltrami, Kathy Duffy, Margaret Kaler, and Robin Mahonen. From “Burn the Witch” to  “Come up and see me sometime,” we celebrate women's power, seasoned with pepper and humor.

 Registration is not required.
