Special Speaker:  Dr. Bradley Stevens

“The Discovery of the Russian Ship Kad’yak”

Dr. Bradley Stevens is Professor Emeritus of Marine Science from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. He learned to sail and repair a series of “almost free” boats including a Catalina 22 and a Tanzer 26. His retirement boat bucks are now rapidly disappearing into a recently acquired Catalina 36. Prior to washing ashore in Salisbury, he worked in Alaska for 22 years, during which he discovered the 1860 wreck of the three-masted Russian ship Kad’yak. He published the Kad’yak story in a book, “The Ship, the Saint, and the Sailor; the Long Search for the Legendary Kad’yak”, and in 2022 helped make a video about it for National Geographic. He currently publishes environmental science articles under the title “Ecologist At Large” on Substack.com.


Brad has been a member of ESSA since 2010. The ESSA bridge is delighted to have someone of his experience and accomplishment  among us. His presentation should certainly engage all in attendance.
