OCEARCH DOCKS ON BRUNSWICK SHORES

Sunday, November 27th 2016

The M/V OCEARCH is at the Mary Ross Waterfront Park. The shark tracking and research ship will be with us until February, 2017.

Wes Wolfe of The News writes:

“Sharks — big ones, small ones, all kinds — are key to maintaining balance in the ecosystems of the world’s oceans, and the M/V OCEARCH crew is at the forefront of that effort. The ship and its crew is the expeditionary arm of the OCEARCH research organization, and for the winter, those folks and their ship will be where it is now, docked next to Mary Ross Park in downtown Brunswick.
“We were looking to other places around Georgia — even northern Florida, even as far north as North Carolina, which I wasn’t for because it’s still too darn cold,” said Brandon Eyre, ship manager of the M/V OCEARCH. “We just spent — our last two expeditions were at Montauk, (New York) were we caught nine baby white sharks and off Nantucket, Massachusetts, where we caught six adults. Now we’re able to follow along during the winter what’s going on. And so, we said we needed to get down south for the winter where we can do a little bit of maintenance.”
The effort off Massachusetts that ended in early November was the 27th expedition for the ship.”

We’re waiting for M/V OCEARCH’s official press release in December, so stay tuned! In the mean time, read The News’ full article here.

CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING

Christmas Tree Lighting

Historic Downtown Brunswick saw a lot of faces during the Christmas Tree Lighting on Friday. Restaurants stayed open late and several businesses kept their beautiful Christmas decorations on to be judged for the Christmas Window Decoration contest. The Christmas tree came from Ben Affleck’s upcoming film Live by Night, which was donated last year.

We had horse driven carriage rides and a reading of The Night Before Christmas by Scott Ryfun of 1440 WGIG.

Rhythm on the River

Island Garage Band gave Mary Ross Waterfront Park a memorable last Rhythm of the River for 2016. The audience was serenaded to the classic sounds of Steely Dan to Hall & Oates. The show started at 6 o’clock and closed at 8. All Fired Up Pizza came with a mobile oven to cater the event. We look forward to next year’s Rhythm on The River, on the first Sunday in March.
