This sailboat’s place in history… 1958 Captain Albert S. Bigelow, pacifist and former Navy Commander, with a small crew sailed the Golden Rule twice to stop nuclear testing in the Pacific. Through their efforts the public started questioning nuclear testing. The sailboat now sits with a huge hole in its hull in Leroy Zerlang’s Fairhaven shipyard near Eureka California. Abandoned and wanting repair several of the West Coast Chapters of Veterans For Peace are putting their efforts into restoring her. The hope is to rebuild this sailboat to once again and carry the message of peace and oppose violent conflict and war.
