Wavertree to Windward A Trafalgar Day celebration was held on October 21 by the National Society aboard the Wavertree, Cape Horn square rigger undergoing restoration at South Street Seaport Museum on downtown New York's East River waterfront. This was also a celebration of the life of Allen S. Rupley, cochairman with Jakob Isbrandtsen of the Society's Friends ofWavertree Committee. Allen who died earlier this year, was remembered by his longtime friend Richard I. Morris, President of the Grace Foundation, who brought greetings also from J. Peter Grace, Chairman of W. R. Grace & Co. who wrote the memoir " Remember ing Rup" appearing in SH 29. Jakob Isbrandtsen said that as Allen worked his way up from the forecastle in W. R. Grace, it was fitting that the new crew's deckhouse aboard the ship be dedicated to him. And accordingly, this was done by Rev. James Whittemore, director of Seamen's Church Institute a nd a notable deepwater sailor himself. The first rivets in the new steel were then punched ho me. On Saturday afternoon , December IO, the ship will celebrate her 98th birthday. The National Society will present her with a builder's plate, as shown below, and friends and supporters will be on hand to wet it down suitably.
