Women At Sea
Explore the hidden histories of women at sea, from Mary Lang, who joined the crew on the last of the merchant sailing ships to journey from South Australia to Cornwall in the 1930s, to Dame Ellen MacArthur who blazed a trail for women in competitive sailing – assuring herself a place in sporting history as the fastest woman ever to circumnavigate the globe. Mermaids: Women At Sea is an exhibition running at the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth until February 21. This exhibition brings these stories to life through objects, film and photography.
