James Craig shanty sessions resume

James Craig

James Craig

The popular shanty singing sessions on the Barque “James Craig” will recommence in March 2013. The plan is to hold them on the first Thursday of each month, provided that the ship is available, starting around 7:30pm. The James Craig is a three masted, iron hulled bark, owned by Sydney Heritage Fleet.

The sessions on the Craig always leave room for everyone to participate. Aim to arrive from 7.30 and the singing will get underway by 8pm. There’s a break for supper and more singing until about 10.30pm. A great night for less than $10, less if you’re a member of the Sydney Heritage Fleet – see http://www.shf.org.au/Application/Application.html

The ship is moored at Wharf 7 (58 Pirrama Road, Pyrmont) between the Australian National Maritime Museum and the Foxtel Building. Walking or the light rail to Pyrmont Bay station are your best bet. Parking – sometimes possible at the Australian National Maritime Museum – is subject to availability. Email Margaret to be added to the email list or to confirm session details.
