The Dana Point Historical Society’s sixth annual public reading of Richard Henry Dana Jr.’s Two Years Before the Mast is set for Friday, April 1 through Sunday, April 3 at the Ocean Institute’s Maritime Barn, 24200 Dana Point Harbor Drive, a new location for the event.

With the brig Pilgrim—a replica of the historic ship that brought the city’s namesake Richard Henry Dana Jr. to this coast—as a backdrop, more than 100 volunteers will read Dana’s memoir as a part of this traditional celebration of Dana Point history.

Volunteers are needed to take shifts reading for eight to 10 minutes each, for a total of 15 hours over three days. Volunteers are also being sought to serve as “watch officers” to oversee and manage each watch.

Readings will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on April 1, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on April 2 and from 9 a.m. to noon on April 3. Admission is free.

To volunteer, email twoyearsbeforethemastdp@gmail.com or call 949.899.0907.
