The Fitz - 40 Years Later

Caribou Highlands Lodge | Lutsen MN

Revisit the November 10, 1975 sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald with 40 years of hind sight. Jim Shinners will share some little known facts, eliminate some of the hype and get at the truth of this modern day tragedy. His storytelling will help to frame the sinking in its proper historical perspective.

Jim has extensive sailing credentials, including sailing his own boat on the Great Lakes, and boat delivery work up and down the east coast and across the Atlantic. He has sailed in various locations around the world. The allure of shipwrecks on Lake Superior has been a compelling interest of his for the past 20+ years.

Jim has read extensively and studied the wrecks, and he will bring the memory of them to life again. He has fascinating stories and facts to tell you about Lake Superior, the lake that ‘never gives up her dead’.
