The Church of Elissa: Mark Scibinico aboard 1877 Tall Ship Elissa
Join Erin as she tries to scramble eggs in the Drake Passage with Mark Scibinico, Port Captain and Director of Maritime Operations at Galveston Historical Foundation www.galvestonhistory.org
We talk about his journey from the kitchens of the Culinary Institute of America to how a tattoo convinced him to give ships a chance, kind of. We learn all about the tall ship Elissa, a ship that is as old as the Statue of Liberty, the unbelievable passion of her volunteers, and that Erin gets really excited talking about astronauts.
Ships/programs mentioned: Alliance, Californian, Grays Harbor Historical Seaport, Kaisei, Lynx, Pride of Baltimore II, Wavertree
