Filmmaker Peter Rowe presented one of the "Angry Planet" films he produced, on the topic of waterspouts. Filming was done in Florida, where waterspouts appear off the Florida keys.
Shellbacks also heard the account of a sailor who was actually involved in a waterspout, and lived to tell the tale. At the tables, others chatted on their own experiences with waterspout sightings.
The Shellback Club will make occasional posts on this blog. If you want something added in a blog post. let us know.
