Video of the Virginia V

The Sun produced a short video of Mosquito Fleet survivor Virginia V’s visit to South Kitsap last week. You can find a related story and photo gallery here.

The Virginia V makes a regular stop on the island for an annual summertime Bainbridge Island Historical Museum fundraiser.

I went on last year’s four-hour excursion. The boat was loaded with island history buffs and a few BI newbies who wanted to get to know their island better. Historian Andy Price and former Washington secretary of state (and island son) Ralph Munro MC’d the tour.

The next trip is July 26. It sold out last year, so make sure to call the museum at (206) 842-2773 to make a reservation.
