Bushel Presents “WindShipped” with Director Q&A

Written By Editor on 1/22/23 | 1/22/23

DELHI —On Thursday, January 26, 7 pm, Bushel will present a film screening of WindShipped, a 2022 documentary about the Hudson River Sail Freight Schooner Apollonia, the only sail cargo venture currently operating in North America. The film’s director Jon Bowermaster and schooner captain Sam Merrett and crew members will be present for a Q&A. The event will conclude with a tasting event. Bushel is located at 106 Main Street, Delhi. Doors open at 6:30; screening at 7 pm. There is seating for 30; mask optional. This event is free and open to the public; donations are welcome to support the film project and to cover event costs. 
WindShipped tells the story of a New York sailing crew, led by Captain Sam Merrett, set on restoring the Apollonia, a 1940s 64-foot, steel-hulled sailboat to return to its original purpose of carrying and delivering cargo by sail. Today the Apollonia is trawling ports from Hudson to Kingston, Beacon to Poughkeepsie, and down to Brooklyn and Manhattan, bringing goods up and down the Hudson, all on sail power and vegetable oil. 
Jon Bowermaster has written eleven books and produced/directed more than thirty documentary films. His feature documentaries include ‘Dear President Obama,’ ‘Antarctica, on the Edge,’ ‘After the Spill,’ and ‘Ghost Fleet.’ He is a longtime contributor to magazines ranging from the New York Times Magazine and the Atlantic to Outside and Rolling Stone.
Sam Merrett (UCSG Captain), Hudson Valley, is the visionary captain of the schooner Apollonia.
