THE MOST INTERESTING SHIP IN THE WORLD?
A FOUR NIGHT PASSAGE ON THE HARSHA VARDHANA
Presented by Tom Rinaldi
Community Church Assembly Room, 40 East 35th Street, Manhattan

This January, WSS PONY member Tom Rinaldi sailed out of Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) aboard what in his view might well be the most interesting ship in the world: the Shipping Corporation of India's 9,700-gross-ton MV HARSHA VARDHANA, which entered service in 1974.  If the HARSHA VARDHANA isn't quite everyone's idea of the world's most interesting ship, she is indisputably one of the world's very last true ocean liners, making line voyages carrying passengers and cargo across the Bay of Bengal.  Please join us for an evening in which Tom will describe his four-night passage from Kolkata to the Andaman Islands for an unusual voyage aboard this very unusual ship.

And at just 30,000 tons and 700 passengers, the INSIGNIA will be able to call at the traditional Bermuda ports of Hamilton and St. George’s, which are off limits to today’s mega-ships—the first ship in years to offer this itinerary from New York.
