The Joys of Yachting History (and One Club’s History in Particular)

 He will discuss the history of our favorite pastime over the years.  He has written a dozen books in the field — books about three yacht clubs (Shelter Island, Fishers Island, and the New York Yacht Club), two historic races (Newport Bermuda and the America’s Cup), two great yachts (America and Bolero), and a lot of terrific storms.  He will have stories about writing these books, with particular interest in the Shelter Island Yacht Club, whose passion in its history is a model for all clubs.
