Description
Join us for our 16th Annual Maritime Ball. This will be a great event as we salute Women at Sea – Honoring Women in Maritime.

 

Our honorees this year are three women who shattered barriers in the maritime industry.

  • Nancy Wagner, one of the first woman to graduate from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in a class that included women, and, the first woman ship pilot in the United States,
  • Lynn Korwatch, first to graduate from the California State University Maritime Academy in a class that included women, and, the first woman to command a United States commercial vessel, she is presently the Executive Director of the Marine Exchange, and
  • Marina Secchitano, first woman to become regional director and, now, national president of the Inland Boatman’s Union (IBU). She also helped lay the groundwork for what is now known as the San Francisco Bay Ferry (WETA), and served as a founding member of the board of directors.
 As more women become involved in maritime we look forward to celebrating their accomplishments and contributions to maritime history.
