#121 Carlyn Stark, Sailor

(First airdate: October 9, 2018) CARLYN STARK: A SAILOR WITH A PASSION FOR SCHOONERS. Our Town Host Maryanne McNellis interviews Carlyn Kaiser Stark, Emerita on the Board of the Maritime Center & the Wooden Boat Foundation. Carlyn was instrumental in bringing the 100-year-old schooner “The Martha” to Puget Sound from San Francisco. Her father, industrialist Edgar Kaiser, purchased the ship for his daughter and she brought it to the Four Winds Camp on Orcas Island. Carlyn was a camper there as a girl, then ran the place for years. As a token of appreciation the Camp (which is now a foundation) later named its huge sailing ship “The Carlyn” after her. Today school kids from Seattle to Orcas Island learn about the sea aboard “The Carlyn”.
