About this event

"I have fond memories of living at Nobska" -- Author Captain W. Russell Webster discusses his distinguished career as United States Coast Guard Commander at Group Woods Hole through the lens of living at Nobska Light.

Captain Webster served for twenty-six years in the Coast Guard. As Commander at Group Woods Hole, then one of the largest search and rescue groups, Captain Webster was Incident Commander for both the 1999 JFK, Jr., and Egypt Air 990 air crashes.

In his final assignment, Captain Webster served as Chief of Operations (District 1) in the Northeast between Canada and New Jersey. During 9/11, Captain Webster supported all operations in response to the terrorist attack.

Now retired from public service, Webster is an author whose books on Coast Guard-related maritime tragedies reflect his experience as a Search and Rescue field commander: The Pendleton Disaster Off Cape Cod: The Greatest Small Boat Rescue in Coast Guard History; The Tragic Sinking of the Sol-e-Mar Off Martha’s Vineyard; Lost in Charleston’s Waves: The Tragedy of the Sailing Vessel Morning Dew.

His newest book, The Tragic Sinking of Gloucester's Patriot, now available for pre-order, will be released on May 23, 2022.
