On November 7th, SEAS and the Sheboygan Yacht Club hosted the first annual Pickle Night Dinner.
The event, which commemorates Lord Horatio Nelson’s victory in the Battle of Trafalgar and the HMS Pickle’s delivery of the news, was celebrated this year shortly after the 240th anniversary of the battle.
The Pickle Night Dinner is popular at yacht clubs around the country and SEAS was proud to help host the first one in the area. The evening opened with a cocktail hour and a mad-lib style activity that helped prime guests on the history of the HMS Pickle and the Battle of Trafalgar.
Following dinner, Program Director Matt Weirzbach gave an engaging presentation that expanded upon what guests had already learned.
With a terrific turnout from the yacht club and the community, the first annual Pickle Night Dinner was a great success! SEAS looks forward to next year’s dinner and all of the upcoming educational social events.
