“We Are Very Likely To Die” – The Incredible True Story of the Sinking of the R/V Sea Surveyor

Wednesday, November 29, 2023 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

In 1969, an EB research ship sank in the Atlantic, and even the survivors didn’t know why. On January 6, 1969, a 118′ research vessel named the R/V Sea Surveyor departed Groton, CT, on a testing mission for the US Navy. She never made it to her destination and never returned to port.

Join us for a lively presentation by Wally Banzhaf, Simsbury resident, and one of 12 survivors of this disaster! Wally’s presentation will be followed by Q&A with the audience.

Please register so we can set the community room up with appropriate spacing.
