'Rescue of the Bounty' @ Bourne Historical Society

When: Wed Apr 30th
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Where: 30 Keene Street

Michael J. Tougias, co-author of  "Rescue of the Bounty," will give a dramatic visual presentation about this event, which is free and open to the public. The tall ship Bounty, featured inn the Marlon Brando movie "Mutiny on the Bounty," sank during Superstorm Sandy in 2012. The captain and a crewmember died in the accident but the Coast Guard performed harrowing helicopter rescues to save the other 14 sailors. Tougias will use slides of the storm, the survivors, and the rescue to make this “an edge-of-your seat” visual program. More information at or
