March 3, 2020 | 0 Comments

The Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute [BUEI] will host a number of events in March, including a talk entitled “The Voyages of Bob: Cultures of the Ocean,” a documentary entitled “Best Kept Secret” and a  talk entitled “A Half Century Under The Sea: Fifty Years Of Diving In Bermuda’s Waters.”

Admission for the three events is $20 for members, $25 for non-members, and $12 for students.

A talk entitled “The Voyages of Bob: Cultures of the Ocean” with Alex and Sarah Brooks will be presented tomorrow [March 5] at 7.30pm at BUEI Auditorium.

The event poster says, “Most people lead lives very different from our own. Humanity and its civilizations have deep associations with the ocean and no other species on the planet interacts with them in quite the same way.

“Bermudian Alex Brooks and his partner Sarah spent over 3 1/2 years circumnavigating the globe on their 36-foot sailboat – s/v Bob.

“Join them as they introduce you to remote island-cultures and explore the unique relationship humans have with the ocean.

“In the face of huge challenges associated with food, resources and a changing climate, perhaps there’s something to be learned from the resilience and diversity of traditional maritime life.“
