Bereits im Jahr fand in London mit der Great Exhibition die erste Weltausstellung statt, eine Messe, bei der jedes Land seine besten Produkte vorführen sollte. Das Turnier in Altensteig findet aber noch zu Beginn der Vorbereitung statt — und wie schlag den star punkte gesagt, liegt da der Fokus auf dem athletischen Bereich.

Mai kenterte beim Training in der San Francisco Bay der schwedische Katamaran Artemis , wobei der vordere Querträger brach und das Boot zusammenklappte. Im Jahr gab es erstmals mehrere Herausforderer, so dass der veranstaltende New York Yacht Club sich einverstanden erklärte, den offiziellen Herausforderer durch eine Vorausscheidung zu ermitteln.

Alan Bond , an Australian businessman, made three unsuccessful challenges between and In the cup was successfully defended by Courageous , which successfully defended again in , at which time she was skippered by Ted Turner.

In the Cup was defended by Freedom. Bond returned in for a fourth challenge, complete with a symbolic golden wrench which he claimed would be used to unbolt the cup from its plinth, so that he could take it back to Australia.

In there were seven challengers for the cup competing for the inaugural Louis Vuitton Cup , the winner of which would go on to the America's Cup match against the NYYC's yacht selected in their trials.

Sporting the now famous Boxing Kangaroo flag and the controversial winged keel designed by Ben Lexcen , the hull of Australia II was kept under wraps between races and was subject to attempts by the NYYC to disqualify the boat.

In the cup races, the Australians got off to a bad start with equipment failures and false starts giving the defenders a head start.

But it was not to be a repeat of the last years: This was the first time the NYYC had lost the cup in years and 26 challenges. Alan Bond joked that the cup would be renamed "The Australia's Cup".

For the first time since its inception the America's Cup was defended outside of the US off the coast of Fremantle.

This was a new era for the cup with interest in competing being shown by many countries. Technology was now playing an increasing role in yacht design.

The winner, Australia II, had sported the revolutionary winged keel , and the New Zealand boat that Conner had beaten in the Louis Vuitton Cup final in Fremantle was the first metre class to have a hull of fiberglass , rather than aluminum or wood.

The metre class rules stipulated that the hull had to be the same thickness throughout and could not be made lighter in the bow and stern.

The other challengers demanded that core samples be taken from the plastic hull to show its thickness. At one press conference Dennis Conner asked, "Why would you build a plastic yacht Chris Dickson , skipper of the Kiwi Magic KZ 7 , took the controversy in stride and with humor, and Conner has subsequently stated his regret over his comment.

Eventually some small holes were drilled to test the hull, and ultrasonic testing was done to rule out air pockets in the construction.

The boat was found to be within class rules, and the issue was set aside. Fay ceremoniously lay down in front of the measurer before the samples were taken.

In , soon after Conner had won back the cup with Stars and Stripes but before the San Diego Yacht Club had publicly issued terms for the next regatta, a New Zealand syndicate, again led by merchant banker Sir Michael Fay , lodged a surprise challenge.

This was an unwelcome challenge to the San Diego Yacht Club, who wanted to continue to run Cup regattas using metre yachts.

The court ordered SDYC to accept it and negotiate mutually agreeable terms for a match, or to race under the default provisions of the Deed, or to forfeit the cup to MBBC.

They recognized that a catamaran was not expressly prohibited under the rules. Multihulls, due to a lower wetted surface area and vastly lower mass, are inherently faster than equal-length monohulls.

Conner, however, left nothing to chance and commissioned a cutting edge design with a wing sail, named—as his metre yachts had been— Stars and Stripes.

The two yachts raced under the simple terms of the deed in September, New Zealand predictably lost by a huge margin. Fay then took SDYC back to court, arguing that the race had been unfair, certainly not the "friendly competition between nations", envisaged in the Deed of Gift.

Ciparick agreed and awarded New Zealand the Cup. Fay then appealed to New York's highest court and lost. Thus SDYC successfully defended the cup in what observers described as the most controversial cup match to that point.

In the wake of the controversies, the International America's Cup Class IACC was introduced, replacing the metre class that had been used since The run-up to the Cup was notable for the televised sinking of oneAustralia during the fourth round robin of the Louis Vuitton challenger selection series , with all hands escaping uninjured.

The defender selection series also had the first mostly female with one man crew sailing the yacht USA , nicknamed "Mighty Mary".

The man, Benjamin Peri Nathan, was subsequently found guilty of criminal damage and sentenced to 18 months imprisonment reduced from 34 months on appeal.

The damage was so severe that it was feared that the cup was irreparable. London's Garrards silversmiths, who had manufactured the cup in , painstakingly restored the trophy to its original condition over three months, free of charge.

This was the first America's Cup to be contested without an American challenger or defender. During the Twelve-Metre era, the New York Yacht Club, citing the Deed language that the Cup should be "perpetually a Challenge Cup for friendly competition between foreign countries", had adopted several interpretive resolutions intended to strengthen nationality requirements.

By , these resolutions specified that besides being constructed in the country of the challenger or defender, a yacht had to be designed by and crewed by nationals of the country where the yacht club was located.

Globalization made it increasingly impractical to enforce design nationality rules, and starting in , the Royal Perth Yacht Club began relaxing this requirement.

Numerous members of the New Zealand AC team became key members of the Swiss Alinghi challenge, led by biotechnology entrepreneur Ernesto Bertarelli.

To satisfy the crew nationality requirements, New Zealand team members of Alinghi took up residence in Switzerland.

In , several strong challengers vied for the right to sail for the cup in Auckland during the challenger selection series. For the challenge, SNG rescinded all interpretive resolutions to the deed, essentially leaving "constructed in country" as the only remaining nationality requirement.

The defense of the cup was held in Valencia , Spain. This was the first time since the original Isle of Wight race that the America's Cup regatta had been held in Europe, or in a country different from that of the defender necessary because Switzerland, despite having huge lakes and a national passion for sailing, does not border a "sea or arm of the sea" as specified in the Deed.

Eleven challenging yacht clubs from 9 countries submitted formal entries. When SNG and CNEV published their protocol for the 33rd America's Cup, there was criticism over its terms, with some teams and yacht clubs calling it the worst protocol in the history of the event.

Since the two parties were unable to agree otherwise, the match took place as a one-on-one Deed of Gift match [nb 1] with no other clubs or teams participating.

The rigid wing sail of the challenging trimaran USA provided a decisive advantage, and it won the America's Cup 2—0. Paralleling the "Acts" of the 32nd America's Cup—a series of preliminary events in different venues leading-up to the actual event—a new series, the America's Cup World Series was to be run using AC45 class boats smaller one-design versions of the AC72s , in various world venues in and On 12 May , Club Nautico di Roma withdrew from the competition, citing challenges in raising sufficient funds to field a competitive team.

The resulting match between the USA and NZ was the longest on record both in calendar time, and the number of races, with the Golden Gate Yacht Club staging an improbable come-from-behind victory, winning eight straight races to defend the cup and beat New Zealand 9—8.

When an even smaller 50ft wingsail foiling catamaran class rule amendment was voted in April , Luna Rossa Challenge also withdrew, citing significant costs wasted on the development of the larger vessel.

In June , for the first time in history, an America's Cup race included fresh water sailing, when preliminary races were held on Lake Michigan , based in Chicago, Illinois, United States, North America.

New Zealand won the America's Cup with a score of 7 to 1. New York Yacht Club: In Goodyear chairman Paul W. The film Wind is largely about the Americas Cup racing towards the end of the meter era.

Although the names have been changed, it largely about Dennis Conner 's s cycle of loss and comeback. The film is generally loved by sailors due to the high-quality cinematography and great efforts taken to portray meter yachts engaging in match racing.

Oliver Iselin March 6, Charles Oliver Iselin Papers. On Burnside Street cheerful Museum volunteers come and go from a variety of projects.

All over campus we have volunteers working on exhibits, and the buildings. Some of our volunteers are Roger Williams University students working on several projects as interns.

In the office we have volunteers helping to mail thank you letters to donors, and working on the Reliance Blog, as well as scanning and cataloging an amazing collection of photographs.

Information is abundant at the Museum, and the Education Committee is working with the local and state education departments to make it accessible to students and create knowledge.

We have designed extensive programming and we are building field trip programs as well as programs that we will take to the classroom.

These programs are linked to the latest curriculum which includes introductory engineering. The Summer Seamanship Program begins June 24th.

Here we teach the art of seamanship. Seamanship is an art because it can only be learned by doing. You can study buoyancy, current set and drift, and leeway in the classroom, but you can't learn to shoot a mooring except by practice.

Registration opens on February 1. The lecture series is a great excuse to come by for a gam with old friends and new friends, and to learn something too.

February 28th David Liebenberg will be speaking about how he and his team qualified for the Youth America's Cup.

Come support the Museum and enjoy good company, good food, and good music. All this and exhibits too! Of course we are working on our exhibits while we are closed.

The Steam and Fittings Hall is getting explanatory signage, and additional interpretive work. The Timeline Wall is scheduled for an upgrade also.

The Bash, scheduled for March 9th will start at 6: All hands are on deck to help with preparations for what is sure to be the party of the season.

Food stations, with fare supplied by local vendors, and bars will be spread throughout the Museum for guests to frequent and savor. Also on hand will be a DJ, a photo booth, a games area, and tables with tempting items for a silent auction.

A live auction will happen during the event and all guests will want to make sure they are standing by and ready to bid on these amazing items soon to be announced.

An early invitation went out this week and tickets are currently being sold. We are pleased to announce our Title Sponsor - The Bay.

This is a wonderful opportunity for the Museum and we look forward to working with The Bay staff on this very exciting event. Other sponsorship opportunities are still available.

This is a great way for local companies to stay connected to a great non-profit organization. The event will market all sponsors to thousands of people as we post to facebook, send out e-blasts, and remind all of our friends that this is the place to be on the 9th.

See you on the 9th! We accomplish that in a number of ways, one of which is the preservation and display of representative boats of the types designed and built by the Company.

Nat Herreshoff is recognized as the developer of the first successful full-size fin-keel yacht. Both are in storage awaiting the resources to accomplish planned restorations for static display.

WEE WINN had a long and successful race career and was the subject of an admiring description by the English naval architect Uffa Fox as an excellent example of light Herreshoff construction of the s.

Actively sailed in the Cowes area until about , WEE WINN was rescued from a bonfire and donated to the museum by Jonathan Janson in with hull intact, but missing the fin, rudder and spars.

JILT is gaff-rigged sloop with a small cuddy and canoe shaped hull 31 feet length on deck with a 21 foot waterline from which is suspended a deep fin keel fashioned from timber and lead with a modified bulb, and a spade rudder.

He sailed her in the s during summer vacations in Maine. He refit the hull and returned her to service with a plywood deck and larger deckhouse.

The boat again fell on hard times and suffered hull deformation from poppets set on uneven ground without keel blocks. That is how she arrived at the museum when donated by R.

Daniel Prentiss in The restoration plan consists of two parts: The museum is searching for partners for the two historically important boats.

If you are interested in helping the museum return them to their splendor as evidenced by the Kathy Bray prints please let us know.

Two months later, HMCo. The model arrived at the Museum shortly after Thanksgiving, and from subsequent research it appears that the model was made circa for Commodore Ledyard by the important model-builder Gustav Grahn of New York.

Stay tuned for updates and information on upcoming lectures. You can find information on our January lecture with Tim Fallon here.

We are pleased to announce that our lectures are being filmed and the first 2 installments are ready to be viewed online h ere.

Our lecture series has been very successful thanks to our wonderful presenters and our great sponsors. This is a perfect way to share the lectures with an even larger audience.

See you on January 24th! See the above graphic. The Admiralty had been steadily improving its steam launches, but always in the same direction each building on a previous design.

The Herreshoff boat represented an improvement from a different point of departure. The boat weighed only 6 tons, 8 with torpedoes and stores.

The wood underwater planking was more durable than the very thin steel plating that would be admissible to keep the weight down. The steel skin and curved steel superstructure provided the hull strength and stiffness at the ends for davit storage.

The patented safety coil boiler consisted of feet of 2-inch diameter wrought iron pipe formed into a coil encasing the coal-fired combustion chamber.

The compound engine, placed well forward, was joined by a curved drive shaft to a inch diameter propeller positioned so that it was always in solid water.

The design of the boat, designated TB 73, and its performance were a matter of special interest when John and Nat delivered her to the Royal Victualling Yard on the Thames.

All were highly successful and the Herreshoffs were complimented on the results. The Herreshoff Torpedo Boats: Recent Practice in Marine Engineering.

London, New York, , p. After School Mentorship Update Lots of progress to report from the boat-shop, building Participation is up in our after school program, now in its third year.

Luke graduated from Chariho High School in and studied marine technology there. He is attending CCRI.

He was our volunteer junior boat-shop manager this summer, and helped many projects move at a steady pace. Fairing the hull was incorporated into the painting process, and she came out looking sweet.

She is now being offered for sale, as we have received two boat donations this year! She is generously on loan from Larry Geuss and Pam Lenehan for sailing school use.

We have scraped and re-painted her bilges, floorboards, aft and forward compartments. We took a turn on the keelbolts while we were there — all secure.

Then we have put two coats of varnish all over, and six more on the seats! We also faired and painted her topsides. FROLIC, also on loan for sailing school use is getting a replacement starboard seat support, interior white paint, and six coats of varnish.

We are also fashioning a replacement boom from a larger left over piece of fir, repairing a tiller, building oak boom supports, and keeping the shop clean for the benefit of all.

Here is their read on it: We get to work with them on reducing RELIANCE plans to scale, geometry problems associated with boat-building, and drafting among the math and engineering problems we face.

So you see, Building 28 can be a "happening place" worth your visit! Some of the activities of the past year are pictured on the enclosed collage.

While these are significant, it is even more important that we are positioned for greater success in In fact, we cannot accomplish so much without your support.

Our membership and visitor attendance are growing. Together, these tell the story of the people and the boats that had such a tremendous impact on yachting and manufacturing history.

With your continuing support, we can try to ensure that people will witness these accomplishments by preserving, documenting, and presenting them.

We want you to be part of this dynamic change. I ask and thank you for your generous support of our mission to educate and inspire.

We look forward to seeing you at the Museum in the near future. All best wishes for the upcoming holidays. A new challenge from Lipton is expected.

He designs the most powerful Cup vessel ever. He incorporates within its hull and rig improvements from his previous designs. She will achieve the fastest time over the mile course.

In early September he writes C. Oliver Iselin that the model is very nearly complete, but Iselin pushes him to do more. Nat responds with a second design that is more powerful and more extreme in type.

Shortly after the contract to build the defender is signed on Oct. One of the first construction drawings is the mold for the lead keel that is to be built on the marine railway cradle in the South Shop.

This is a major structure as it must contain the molten lead until it cools to a solid. The form is built and on Nov.

This is one month earlier than previous defenders. Construction of the new defender will be pushed to achieve an early delivery. Our unique collection sparks the imagination with dynamic, interactive activities and investigations.

We are lucky to have a highly qualified Education Committee at the Museum with interests in public schools, charter schools, private schools, and home schooling.

The Assistant Superintendent of Bristol Warren Schools has also been working with us to further enhance programming and increase visitation from school groups.

We provide numerous different school programs for students K, as well as collaborations with Bryant College and Roger Williams students. Look to our website for the new, improved outline and offerings, which include: How Fast Can a Boat Go?

Who Were The Herreshoffs? To make a reservation for a school program or tour, please contact Richard Feeny, Educator, at The Museum has engaged a well-recognized Rhode Island consulting company to lead board and staff through the strategic planning process.

Mr David Ford, Chairman of the Board, says: We look forward to working with our members, supporters and the local community to help determine and secure the future of the Museum.

Founded in , the Foundation is one of the oldest and largest community foundations in the United States, and is the largest and most comprehensive funder of nonprofit organizations in Rhode Island.

The sponsors came on 2 years ago and it has been a fantastic partnership. We hope that you have seen this success in our many lectures and other events.

The Points East Staff have been on hand to help with planning, prep and advertising and Cisco arrives at each event to stock us with cold beverages for our guests.

Thank you to our sponsors for their support and enthusiasm. We are looking forward to a great lineup. This lecture is on October 25th. Doors at 6pm — Lecture at 7pm.

The Nathanael Greene Herreshoff Model Room holds a collection unique in the world - Captain Nat's models used to create his designs, including his America's Cup defenders.

The models are works of art in themselves, and are testimony to Captain Nat's genius as a naval architect. Guests are welcome to tour the N.

Herreshoff Model Room following the presentation. The lecture is titled The Herreshoff Torpedo Boats: Innovation at the Beginning of the Modern US Navy - Forget the stories you thought you knew about Herreshoff torpedo boats- innovations were adapted from yacht designs; battles with local Navy inspectors drove the decision to leave the business.

New team research reveals the influence of a strong Narragansett Bay connection and the Herreshoff brothers 20 year effort to dominate the torpedo boat business with innovative designs and a business plan to nullify the influence of the Navy bureaucracy and their specifications.

Stay tuned for more information and see you soon at the Museum. Lipton, with a seemingly bottomless purse, was challenging every other year.

Defending the Cup had become an expensive proposition. Each new challenge required the NYYC to form a syndicate to build a new defender, as well as additional syndicates to recommission prior year Herreshoff-built Cup winners to campaign against the new boat for the right to defend.

Oliver Iselin to manage the new boat syndicate, Capt. Nat Herreshoff to design and participate in leading the campaign, and the redoubtable Charlie Barr to skipper the boat.

Iselin had committed to the task very early in Nat and Barr were the problem. In the spring, when Iselin corresponded with Capt. Nat about the forthcoming challenge he received a disturbing response.

The Cup defender would be very demanding of his time on top of an already full order book, his wife was seriously ill and he was suffering from rheumatism.

He also enlisted Commodore Ledyard who assured Nat that the well-funded syndicate had Barr locked up. But Ledyard had written prematurely because Barr had already signed with August Belmont.

To break that commitment would be expensive. Barr was the last to join. It was well worth the effort to assemble.

Lipton did not challenge again until The Herreshoff Museum runs year-round programs ashore and afloat to educate and inspire people.

Complicated science and mathematics becomes clearer when one has the opportunity to, for example, apply math to navigation exercises or boatbuilding geometry.

Similarly, science and mathematics make sense when we see them being used to develop a new technology, as the Herreshoff brothers were famous for.

The story of the HMCo. The program has been successful, pairing over twenty students with ten mentors. These mentors represent an expanded group of skilled volunteers, young and old, engaging with the students, the work, the boats, and our Museum.

The wind on both days was frustratingly light and the courses were challenging. Special thanks to our committe chairs Steve Frary and Walter Bopp for all of their help.

Following the regatta, Home and Hospice Care hosted an informal dinner under our tent for their supporters complete with fireworks and a band.

Both of these regattas will be back on the schedule in so look for more information here in The Current on how to participate.

The machinery was fired up only four days later. Hearst to take delivery, which he did on July With navy inspectors on board, she accomplished one mile in 2 min.

But she stood apart. Low in profile, narrow at the beam, with a single smokestack and a deck uncluttered but for pilothouse and a sun canopy, she had none of the traditional features of yachting elegance.

She was all steam and her sleek appearance expressed the aggressive purposes for which she was designed. The next run with the wind and tide, pounds of steam and rpm, took 2 min.

For the third run, the two firemen stoking coal into the boiler built up pounds of steam just below the safety setting of A quarter-mile into the run the steam steering gear stuffing box blew out.

With temporary steering rigged a fourth attempt was made, but maximum steam pressure was not attained and the time was 2 min. Mosher of Amesbury, MA.

She was owned by New York millionaire publisher Norman L. Munro who like Hearst had the ambition to possess the fastest steam yacht.

It was an extraordinary operation, requiring the partial dismantling of three bridges along the track. It seems that the literary critics at the San Francisco Examiner had been unkind to a popular new novel, The Quick or the Dead, written by his daughter.

These were two very different boats as is made clear by the following table. Unfortunately Munro died before he could carry out the race.

The Spanish had put a large number of troops into Cuba and Hearst was anxious to get the story. No arms were found. Hearst quote from New York Times Sept.

Please call today to schedule an unforgettable sailing experience, which also makes a great gift. The answer is with donations, volunteers, and an after-school mentorship program teaching classic boat repair and maintenance.

The Regatta is the Herreshoff Marine Museum's signature event, and participation both helps support the Museum, and gives all of us a chance to share our passion for sailing and friendly competition.

The Herreshoff Classic Regatta is an important museum tradition, and many of the boats participating will be nearly years old, a remarkable testament to the Herreshoff legacy.

We will also welcome a fleet of Sea Sprites which frequently race in Bristol Harbor and will come to the Museum for the festivities.

The weekend will start with a cocktail reception at the Living Boat Show on Friday night from 5 pm to 9 pm.

We will start the day Saturday with a skippers meeting at 9 am followed by racing at 11 am. Sailors will come off the water in the evening for a classic New England clambake, cocktails and awards.

Whether you own a yacht which you would like to enter in the competition, would like to volunteer as crew, or would prefer to simply enjoy the social program while interacting with a terrific community of sailors, we urge you to join us.

A few years later he ordered the larger LIBERTY, a foot vessel equipped with state-of-the-art soundproofing that allowed many restful nights on frequent journeys across the Atlantic.

He used it to shuttle between his Sausalito home and the offices of his San Francisco Examiner. The Bay was choppy and she arrived soaked to the skin.

Phoebe Apperson Hearst decided her son should have the largest steam yacht that could be shipped by rail to San Francisco from New York.

Hearst visited Herreshoff on July 19, and on July 26 Nat Herreshoff NGH recorded in his diary that Hearst had placed an order for an foot waterline high-speed yacht.

Following more negotiations NGH wrote in his diary on Dec. The Herreshoffs, in fact, may have been the only builder in the world confident enough to accept the Hearst order, coming as it did with the stipulation: He knew that to meet the speed guarantee the one unsolved challenge was to fit his new Thornycroft type boiler into a hull 2 feet 5 inches narrower in beam and shorter in vertical height than the larger torpedo boat CUSHING for which the boiler was designed.

The very first drawing he prepared in December Figure 1 was a body section of the boiler barely squeezed into the hull with the upper casing and steam drum extending above the potential deck line; not quite a fit, but he could make it work.

The drawing has no date in December, but recognizing the great care with which he approached his work it is almost certain that he did the drawing before the contract wording was agreed to on the 4th of that month.

Why was this the one and only unsolved challenge? What about the shape of the hull and its structural details, the engine, the propeller?

In short how did the Company meet a guarantee to build a steam yacht that would set a speed record, lay the keel only five weeks after contract award and deliver in a short seven months?

This half model was used with some modifications for sixteen steam power vessels from to Figure 2 The engine was made of forged steel in place of heavier iron castings and included an innovative lightweight hollow-steel crankshaft, The power plant produced an impressive bhp and was directly coupled to a 52 inch dia.

The smaller vessel was purchased by E. We have found no records of the actual contract wording in the museum files. There is a question about the contract speed; in The Uncrowned King it is stated as 26 knots, but mph was used in those days, not knots.

The following day a boiler tube burst with the firebox door open. A fireman was fatally asphyxiated and NGH lost his steam engineer license over the incident.

We also have some need-based scholarship funds still available. Bring your neighbors, bring your friends. Ready for something bigger?

Photo and registration form attached. The last night of this trip was one to remember! Thunder and lightning had us huddling over a bowl of chowder ashore at Mystic Seaport, until the last moment.

We made the first bridge, as the rain eased up, and by the time the second bridge opened we had a rainbow off the port bow, and cumulonimbus clouds turning pink in the setting sun.

Navigating Fishers Island Sound leaves little time to enjoy such sights, but when the full moon rose from behind the clouds the cumulative delight was palpable.

All sail was set with a light wind off the shore, and behind the beam. We could smell the honeysuckle in the sand dunes as we reached down the beach.

At the change of the watch safety harnesses were exchanged for bunks. Three hours later we swapped again, the lights of Newport ahead.

The defender trials were unique on two counts. First, they were widely viewed as a competition for American yachting supremacy pitting the elite of Boston against that of New York.

Second, the trials were a battle between four distinct types of cutter. That question was posed to Watson upon his arrival in the US.

No correspondence from Mr. Carroll or Barr In later years it was usual for the American yacht owners and Charlie Barr to correspond with Nat about their European campaigns.

But as Watson surmised it is certain that Capt. But it was just the right amount of everything to make the guests want to come back next year. A perfect Summer evening spent with great friends from near and far; the buzz of Bristol's downtown preparing for the th annual July 4th parade; a fireworks display actually 3 different displays were viewed from our dock this year!

Thank you to our guests, our committee members and sponsors. You all joined forces to make this a memorable night.

Hope to see you all again next 3rd! The 4th- How could it get better than it was this year? Sunshine followed a morning rain.

Dixieland music by the Ancient Mariners filled the tent before the parade. We served up shade, refreshments, museum admission and a whole lot of fun while we waited for and watched the parade.

Leo's Ristorante and Plouf Plouf Gastronomie, Bristol's local gourmet food truck, were on campus to serve breakfast and lunch to the more than guests that joined us.

The Herreshoff Marine Museum is the place to be for the 4th of July. Whether by land or sea, we take the logistics and hassle out of your visit.

And of course, Thank you to our sponsors. We would not have been able to do it without your support: The parade passes right through the heart of our Museum campus and we have a wonderful vantage point on the waterfront from which to enjoy the parade and all that Bristol has to offer.

Join us by land or by sea. Make your reservations on our website today. On the morning of the 4th our waterfront events tent will be featuring the Ancient Mariners Dixieland Band, buffet breakfast and a bloody mary bar from 7: The parade arrives shortly after that.

You will be welcomed on our lawn to view the parade. Seating, refreshments, shade, hopefully a sea breeze and "facilities" will be ready and waiting for you.

We have parking available for those that plan ahead and arrive by 7: The town's patriotic exercises are a short walk from here and start at 8: The Museum will be open to visitors.

Come take a spin around the harbor and see why these beautiful boats have remained a classic for nearly years.

The night of the 3rd, Bristol will be in full celebration mode. Our waterfront events tent will be buzzing as we host a family bar-b-que with both a 5: North Sails will be doing a sail making event for the children.

Then it will be time to step on the dance floor because we have the privilege of dancing to The Ravers. This band has been entertaining Newport parties for over twenty years and it is impossible to sit still when they play.

There will be a cocktail bar set up by the Dockhouse all evening. Bristol fireworks will go off at 9: It is a beautiful sight. The Museum will be open to visitors until 7: It is only a few blocks walk from the Museum to the heart of downtown Bristol.

Use our campus as your parade headquarters and enjoy all that Bristol has to offer without getting overwhelmed by the crowds.

These events will help support the Museum and its educational programs. Tom, the Vice Commodore of the Golden Gate Yacht Club, wandered through the crowd introducing others involved with the Cup and entertaining guests with his sense of humor.

The entertaining presentation was not without informing details of the history of the cup and fascinating information on the new technology being used in AC The exhibit will be in the Exploration Zone located at the center of the fort.

The Exploration Zone is a place for visitors to gather to learn about the state of Rhode Island from technology and marine science to history and preservation.

We are looking forward to the busy weeks ahead and we hope to see you at the Museum or down in Newport at Fort Adams!

Read more about the World Series in Newport here: These are not the first catamarans to grace the Bay. The original rig, a lateen-type sail supported by two masts joined at the top as in an A-frame, was lost when the backstay parted while making 18 knots in a strong southwester.

We will celebrate the induction of three more personalities into the Americas Cup Hall of Fame: At Marble House on the 29th, cocktails will be served on the terrace, then the Induction Dinner under a tent on the lawn, followed by dancing.

The tickets are available now, for tables of 8 or individual tickets. All ticket sales benefit the Museum. Contact Elisabeth Lavers at e.

Since then 75 legends of the Cup have been inducted into the Hall of Fame. Candidates eligible for consideration include skippers, afterguard, crew, designers, builders, organizers, syndicate leaders, chroniclers of the event, and other individuals of merit.

The HMM venue and a new event format was met with much enthusiasm. The Museum welcomed presenters and attendees from all over the globe.

After concluding the morning session, participants moved across the street to Herreshoff Designs, Inc. At the conclusion of the day's events, Herreshoff Designs, Inc.

Several Webb Institute students in attendance gave a short and enjoyable presentation on their experience at this prestigious institution.

We thank Starboard Caterers of Newport for catering this portion of the event. We would like to thank our very generous sponsors for their support and encouragement.

To all CYS attendees, we thank you for your consistent participation and valuable input. This Symposium event was made possible by an unprecedented degree of collaboration with Mystic Seaport, Herreshoff Designs, Inc.

I am grateful to CYS Committee members: His first job, on the building ways of a foot APc Small Coastal Transport , was swinging an adze to bevel the outboard faces of sawn frames so the planking would lie fair against the frames.

The yard worked a ten-hour day, seven days a week and commuting to his home near New Bedford added another two hours each way. There were two reasons for this: The truth is, its like juggling sixteen dumbbells at once to run a new ship the first couple of months.

Just when you think you have them all going properly, one slips, comes down and bops you on the noggin. You will understand when I tell you we left the continental limits three weeks after the commissioning words were said.

To come to the point, the washing machine has been a godsend. Not a day in port but it is spinning and cycling continuously- as faithful a servant to the whole ship as could be wished.

Charity and generosity are easy when your gifts are always in evidence to remind you, as well as the receiver, what a good guy you are. As I said the whole ship uses it.

Therefore the whole ship is going to say thank you. Believe us we are all grateful. New Exhibits for Season — A start with new approaches for the future.

New efforts are underway to further develop for the benefit of the visitor, both expert and novice, the truly wonderful collection of materials and artifacts that constitute the Herreshoff Marine Museum.

Additional progress has been made on other selected Exhibits and displays and will be discussed in a future Newsletter. The Herreshoff Manufacturing Company and Nat Herreshoff made significant technological contributions over their 27 years of involvement and six successful defenses of the America's Cup.

The Reliance display illustrates examples of these works. New displays for the Exhibit have been designed and presented to further engage the visitor with a range of insights portraying the historical background of the 'Cup and some defining characteristics.

These are alongside the 75 Inductees, central to the Hall of Fame, and how they have contributed to the sport of sailing in important ways.

We have re-established the Navy Exhibit and located it on the ground floor. The US Navy is commencing its bicentennial celebration this year on the anniversary of the war of Major events are planned and extend through many ports in The early Herreshoff Manufacturing Company led by Capt.

Nat and his brother John were most influential in providing new concepts in fast torpedo boat designs as the navy was evolving from sail to steam power.

The Company also designed and built vessels for the first and second world wars as well as the fuselage for the first flying boat to make a successful trans-Atlantic flight in , the Curtiss NC The Museum has accumulated, thanks to many years of hard work, a wealth of material and artifacts.

There is much that can be done and good progress is underway at various stages of completion for these core Exhibits. Input and assistance is always appreciated.

A particularly interesting but time consuming challenge is in developing insightful points of interest that convey to the visitor a deeper understanding of these special artifacts, beyond that which the descriptive level of data and information can provide alone.

And, where possible, to draw new insights for thoughts amongst visitors of all ages and interest levels. These are key challenges in modern museums and a world where so much data and information is available.

Key contributors with the author this winter, and to whom we owe a special gratitude, have been Mr John Palmieri, Mr. Bernie Carreiro and Ms. The Voyage Around the Americas: Herb commented on the friends that he made along the way and his crew members who, through this journey, became the best of friends.

The journey's premise was simple: But while that notion was straightforward, what the crew ultimately discovered during their travels was anything but.

Through his stories and photographs we learned about the economic struggles that many nations are facing today and how this, in many instances, is linked to the health of the oceans.

Pictures of sunsets and albatrosses were mixed in with photographs of trash covering beaches and impoverished villages.

At the end of the lecture the message was clear — people need to care about the health of their oceans. As sailors, boaters and ocean lovers we need to be the first to acknowledge the immediate impact and advocate a healthy environment.

We need to cut as much excess waste out of our lives as possible by first looking in our own homes and refrigerators. All in all, the lecture was inspiring.

There is a lot of work to be done and much damage has occurred already. Fortunately for us, one of our astute and knowledgeable members was able to solve this mystery for us in a most satisfactory and interesting manner.

This engagement was cut short in the fall of when she burned to the waterline with no loss of life. The archives and the library are open by appointment year round.

CYS will unite in Bristol the dominant craftsmen and afficianados of classic boats. The morning session will begin at hours with registration and a continental breakfast followed by Halsey Herreshoff's presentation on The Origins and Rebirth of the Big Steel Schooners.

It is a testament to the schooner's elegance and timeless beauty that yards of distinction continue to build these sleek yachts. Their classic lines are unrivalled, their beauty unparalleled and with a 18, s.

They are also powerful, majestic and blazingly fast. What Nat Herreshoff Started in Designed by NGH in his sixtieth decade, this sleek and nimble boat is a sailor's delight.

Come hear owners and builders tell of their love affair with this sailing gem and its many commendable successor sloops. Plan to join us after the day's events at a cocktail reception and networking session across the street sponsored by Herreshoff Designs, Inc.

If your plans include an overnight stay, please join us on Sunday morning for NGH Model room tours by appointment conducted by Halsey Herreshoff and John Palmieri and the Museum's opening day festivities beginning at noon.

This is an event you won't want to miss. Please register early as space is limited. We are grateful to our numerous event sponsors for their support and enthusiasm.

We look forward to welcoming you on April The nearly guests who attended sat captivated as Captain Phillips recounted the capture of the Maersk Alabama in April of Phillips, who was the sole hostage of 4 Somali pirates, was held for days aboard a small life raft awaiting rescue.

A number of audience members stood to thank Captain Phillips for his bravery and for sharing his story.

His wife Andrea and 2 children were in Vermont getting daily updates but they did not know exactly what was happening or of the plans for his rescue.

Captain Phillips took a year off following his rescue and published a book titled: The book is a New York Times bestseller and a fascinating read.

Captain Phillips has now returned to work and works as a Captain 3 months on and 3 months off. In the off months Phillips can be found enjoying his beautiful home in Vermont or out on various public and motivational speaking tours.

Their marketing and enthusiasm has helped to make this the most successful lecture series that the Museum has seen.

He further acknowledged the Roger Williams Sailing Team, first in the nation and all in attendance with their coach Amanda Calllahan.

Finally, Dyer thanked President Farish and Maia Farish, also in attendance and noted that the Museum was pleased to present the lecture in conjunction with Roger Williams University.

All in all, this was a resounding success and we are grateful to Captain Drew Bisset who talked with Captain Phillips and scheduled the lecture.

We all feel fortunate to have heard this story from Captain Phillips: We will remember this as a fascinating evening, a great community partnership, and a resounding success for the Museum.

Nat Herreshoff in the 21st Century The twenty-first century provides a singular opportunity for the Classic Yacht Symposium to explore the body of work by Capt.

Nat Herreshoff and the Herreshoff Manufacturing Co. This opportunity develops from a congruence of factors. Additionally stretching from to are the big steel racing schooners.

Additionally new replicas are being built and modern derivatives are being created with enhanced designs using new materials. In truth there is more energy and excitement in the field than anytime since the boats were originally built.

Nat left little written commentary about his designs for us to dissect. But thanks to Halsey Herreshoff we do have his personal design records housed at the Museum and there are the company drawings carefully conserved at MIT by Kurt Hasselbalch.

These records together with all this activity by the best in the business are creating new insights into his genius on a daily basis.

Even those who design and build derivatives add to our knowledge because they start with developing their own understanding of the original design.

See you at the Muueum on April We work with students and schools on senior projects, internships, an after school program in the boat shop, and field trips.

We also take our traveling trunk education program to schools. This summer we will use our sea chest of educational treasures during the all-day seamanship class.

This winter we have had hundreds of students in for visits. During school visits we use our curriculum enrichment lessons and activities tied to curriculum standards.

We might measure boats, draw boats, float boats, or use a chart to calculate how far their school is from the Museum.

All this is in our traveling trunk. The beauty of the trunk is that the items make tangible connections to subjects.

Teachers can either come to the museum or sign it out for one month. The trunk lessons start with Rhode Island history and social studies and move to mathematics and physics among other lines of study.

After school in the boat shop students learn planning, communication and responsibility—all critical job skills.

They discover abilities they didn't know they had and gain confidence. And, they learn math and come to see it as a useful tool in their lives.

Students work on the standard wooden boat maintenance cycle — removing broken screws and scraping varnish included. The Shore Dinner Hall at Rocky Point in Warwick is doing a booming business as patrons flock to this popular attraction to enjoy chowder, clam cakes, watermelon and cool breezes off Narragansett Bay.

Herreshoff took [the boatbuilders] to Rocky Point in one of his steamers, gave them a good dinner and entertained them handsomely through the day.

The Providence Journal reports in its July 9, , issue that Sir Thomas has made an interesting decision regarding his crew quarters.

Unique but expensive to run with her large gasoline-driven engines, her cost exceeded her receipts and she spent 20 years tied up at Crescent Park and then in Providence.

So far, we have found no further mention of this unique crew lodging. This material includes news clippings, photographs and manuscript materials.

The Rebecca Chase Herreshoff Library of the Herreshoff Marine Museum contains over 5, books, pamphlets and other printed materials covering the wide range of topics of interest and importance to the museum, its members and patrons, and researchers.

The library collection is available to researchers by appointment throughout the year. Donations from museum supporters continually add to the collection and we are grateful for them.

Our sold out audience heard from each individual about his part on this epic assignment. We witnessed the impressive CAD drawings and laser scanning technology which has been used to scan the entire ship — inside and out — compiling a digital image of the ship, the planks, every fastener, and even the density of the material used.

Presenters remarked that this technology combined with the expertise of the shipwrights and staff from the Harry B DuPont Preservation Shipyard made this project possible.

The Herreshoff Marine Museum announced an affiliation with Mystic Seaport one year ago — and we have seen this partnership influence our on-goings in fantastic ways.

It was wonderful to welcome such a capable and interesting group of presenters, not solely as experts in their fields, but as friends and colleagues.

Thank you, Mystic Seaport for a great night. Perhaps you missed the lecture or maybe you would like to revisit this impressive project.

Please register in advance. Buy Tickets Online or call Maggie at the Museum It is the latest chapter in a story that goes back over a century. The year brought a big change in the life of Morton F.

When approached by Plant to build a schooner for racing in Europe, Capt. Unlike the spartan interiors of the defenders INGOMAR was fitted with solid mahogany companionways, hatches and skylights, a luxurious all butternut and mahogany cabin, a ladies cabin upholstered in green plush with many mirrors and artistic hangings, and a circular main saloon with red plush transoms.

Launching on greased ways she hit the water at 10 mph, performed a graceful circle in the harbor and returned running her stern gently into the North wharf with no damage.

Though built to race overseas Plant gave her a summer tryout- winning almost all her races. Encouraged by the results planning started for the season in Europe.

The centerboard was removed and her draft was increased by adding a slab of lead to the bottom of the keel. But it was in the racing that she proved her mettle.

John Palmieri Curator 1 Nat, aged 18, made the sail plan and all the drawings for the boat that had been modeled by his father and blind older brother John.

Enrollment is Open for Summer Seamanship Classes Seamanship is the art and science of maneuvering a boat efficiently and safely. These skills, common to cruisers, racers, sailors, and powerboaters, are taught each summer at the Museum.

Beginning June 25th our Seamanship Program will run in two week sessions. New this year are full-day classes, as well as half-day classes, and alternate-day classes.

Download the registration form. Call or email Richard with questions. The art of seamanship is far older than the science. Its principles may be stated in literary form, but a mastery of it can only be acquired by actual practice on the sea.

URCHIN, back in the water after a three-year rest, will have some new copper rivets, new paint, and brighter bright work. There is room for more students Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays after school from 3 until 5.

Thanks to our generous donors was a very eventful and exciting year at your Museum. We are planning for an equally exciting Here is a brief overview.

During our annual winter closure our exhibits committee is continuing the update of our exhibits begun last year. Sidney deWolf Herreshoff Room in the main Museum building.

To make room for the ACHoF, the steam engine exhibit will be moved to a new Steam Engine Hall and expanded with new descriptive panels demonstrating the important place the steam engines played in the establishment of the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company.

The Hall of Boats will be rearranged to give more prominence to the two classes still actively being sailed, both on Narragansett Bay and elsewhere: New material supplied by the class associations will be incorporated into the exhibits.

Our seamanship and sailing school will have four sessions this year between June 25 and August Our outstanding winter speaker series lineup is described elsewhere.

We intend to continue with speakers and other events on the waterfront throughout the summer. This is an ambitious program.

In order to accomplish it we will need the continued support of our friends, both financial and otherwise. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities, both for regular schedules and ad hoc projects, and from office work to design to carpentry.

Please call Maggie Church, our volunteer coordinator, if you can share some of your time and skills with us.

Our full capacity crowd watched in awe as Mr. In the end, after hours in the water, the entire crew was rescued. George David says that they were extremely lucky and grateful for their safe recovery.

Thank you to all of our members and community who came out on a snowy night. This series has been a huge success and we are grateful for your support.

Our sponsor, Points East Magazine, have been immensely helpful in planning and advertising the series and our thanks goes out to them. We are also pleased to be working with Cisco Brewers and Triple Eight Distillery of Nantucket who have donated refreshments for all lectures in the series.

Staff of the Museum will be here to discuss the recent restoration of the Charles W. If you have been to Mystic recently, it is hard to miss the huge vessel on the east side of the campus.

If you have not been - you need to go! But first, come by to hear the speakers and whet your appetite. Read more about the Charles W.

Thank you for your support and enthusiasm with our lectures and events. We love filling the Museum and rallying around our common love of sailing, racing, building and restoring.

Here is some of the published commentary about her sailing qualities in those years. What started in good weather ended in a strong early spring southwester with heavy seas that left him marveling at how her backstays held, the spars and sail survived the strain, and the bow raised to shake off the water in a following sea.

Anna Kendrick - Cups (Pitch Perfect’s “When I’m Gone”)

Finally, I hope they gain some appreciation of the history and craftsmanship that these boats illustrate. Harris has spent his entire working life in the boat business, in both power and sail, and has a long and diverse sailboat racing and cruising background.

After four years in the Navy as a Russian linguist, he ran his own boatyard and managed and owned several yacht brokerage and sales operations, around the country, for over thirty years.

Along the way, he became a proficient semi-professional air taxi pilot with a floatplane rating , then retired to specialize in brightwork as he seasonally traveled the East Coast aboard his boat s , with long periods in the Florida Keys, Charleston and Annapolis before "swallowing the anchor" and moving ashore about five years ago.

He has taken naturally to the Herreshoff history and is anxious to share it more widely with the public. The "catboat" is perhaps among the most ubiquitous rigs in the world and its Herreshoff iterations, as cats and cat yawls, had a significant influence on sailboat racing, especially in the late 's.

A sizable group of new Volunteers will be required to prepare for this and other events this season, including our annual Regatta Weekend late in August.

Orientation for all new Volunteers, on-the-job training for a variety of tasks, and training schedules for new Docents are being planned, under Harris' overall direction.

Join us as Volunteers in the preparations; you will experience two of most memorable learning seasons of your life!

The benefits are many, the tasks are challenging and enriching; We welcome your participation.

We were pushed over the top by contributions received on the day of our annual Holiday Party, making our celebration particularly jolly.

We also hope to expand the Museum's staff in the education area and to offer adult-oriented short courses in boat maintenance and model making.

We are very grateful to all of you who donated to this challenge, as well as to our anonymous donor. Under these pressures and Captain Nat's deteriorating health weight loss through the summer leading to bed confinement in November it is amazing that he was able to create what are considered to be his best cruising and daysailer designs.

He was there 18 weeks, from early December to April The first NY50s were launched and trialed in December. Nat finally extracted himself from Bristol eleven days later.

He returned to New York on April 19 where he was immediately immersed in meetings with E. Morgan Cup challenge and R.

After pouring the lead on the 12th of December, he discovered a mistake in his calculations - the keel was much too light.

He did not get to work on the design until the last week in January. He planned the new cruiser to be built from the ALERION half model, increased in the ratio of three to four, and with a full keel and sternpost that he added to the model.

Finally, with his work done, Nat departed for Bermuda on the 3rd of February ; all well and good, but much too late into the depths of winter for his worsening health.

This Bermuda respite was too short- just seven weeks, and certainly one cause, along with his demanding work schedule, for his declining weight during the summer and his physical collapse in November.

Trials of both were quickly held and deliveries were made the second week of May. The contract was signed March 28, The 25s were then pushed hard to early completion with the first boat, MINK, launched and trialed on Sunday June 14th, only seven weeks after being set up on the factory floor, and about when Nat, concerned for his health, began to record his loss of weight.

Though there is no record, I believe Nat committed to do the design during the visit, but as time went on nothing came of it.

Nat, now down almost 30 pounds, carved the half model and recorded his design notes on October 27th; the contract was signed three days later.

When the first boat was trialed by Sidney Herreshoff in December, Nat was no longer in Bristol; four weeks after completing the design he entered a private sanitarium for bed rest, and would remain there for two months, until his health returned.

We hope you keep in touch with the many exciting aspects of our Museum. There are a variety of ways to stay in touch: We hope to see you the next time we do a similar event.

Thank you for your enthusiasm and support! This is unfortunate because without JB there was no HMCo and although Nat certainly would have made his mark as a talented designer it would have been different and in many ways less.

Writing about JB is not easy because we have found little written material that he authored. We do know from records that as long as he was the president of the company it was financially successful.

There are also tales of his keen prowess at business and activities that belie his blindness; sail racing with younger brother Nat as his eyes, handling the reins of a carriage or sleigh pulled by spirited trotters, and knowing exactly where he was at any moment to the extent of offering directions advice to a driver or companion.

Teach them to encourage industry, economy, concentration of attention and purpose, and indomitable persistence. My mother had taught me to think, and so I made thought and memory take the place of eyes.

I acquired a habit of mental projection which has allowed me to see models in my mind…and to consider their good and bad points intelligently.

Besides, I cultivated my powers of observation to the utmost, in other respects. I see that in his negotiations to dominate the torpedo boat business.

In my words, he worked from the confidence of knowing that he was the most perceptive, if not the smartest, man in the room. JB was also a very proud person in two respects.

He wanted to be recognized as the exemplary businessman without any reference to his blindness.

This is evident from the cross outs in the newspaper stories that his wife Sadie L. Herreshoff read to him at home.

Herreshoff superintended the work of the engine. He could not abide any stain on this record. When forced by Nat to abrogate the Russian torpedo boat contract in he resigned from the company and died shortly thereafter.

He stopped in New York to run trials up the Hudson and delight his guests with speed runs past the Battery. Positive reports in all the major city newspapers evidence his success in this endeavor.

Oakland Beach Regatta broadside published in an unidentified newspaper. His talent and boldness anchored an amazing career of innovation, accomplishment, and competitive sailing success.

I enjoyed knowing Ted for about fifty years, all the way from early visits to Marblehead to buy S boat spinnakers, to many on-the-water competitions and charming discussions, always thought provoking.

It took us one day to copy that good idea, thus neutralizing its effect. Ted was more interested in sails and boat speed than tactics.

Observing him in action confirmed my impression of utter skill pushing a good sailboat to victory. Of course, he was a man of few words, but also of constant good ideas.

That was no problem for me as my father Sid Herreshoff shared those characteristics. Ted Hood was one of the very most significant practitioners of cutting edge sailmaking, design, construction and sailing prowess.

We shall greatly miss this giant of the sport, who was an inspiration to all in every way. Part Thirteen- The Cup: They did just that.

While Sir Thomas continued corresponding with the NYYC about future races he did not actually throw down the gauntlet of a challenge for another ten years.

He is perhaps the only person who could have encouraged a reluctant Nat Herreshoff to take up the challenge to design the new defender.

What Nat did not get was a financial gift from the syndicate as he had following Cup victories in and No matter the redemption for Capt.

Nat and the financial success for the company, the Cup created strains within the partnership. Nat was the star; he conceived the design in respectful cooperation with Iselin, he negotiated with the syndicate, and the price was whatever HMCo asked.

Nat devoted as much time as necessary for the new defender to succeed; there was no need for the sharp business mind of JB to negotiate a winning contract, beating out the competition, while assuring a good profit for HMCo.

This was unlike, for example, the steam yacht and torpedo boat business where JB led the strategic business planning and was the point man, with many visits for direct negotiations with the customer.

But what of Lipton: The Americans rushed to console and be near Lipton. Still it is a consolation to know the conquering belong to the same good old race, who are bound to us by the closest of ties.

The cup is still in the family and is simply held by a more go ahead branch. Nat just once and Iselin only a little. Lipton however was news in the Times every single day for almost three weeks: This free publicity earned double digit returns.

In British shareholders of Lipton Ltd. UK had grumbled about the time he devoted to yachting; then business improved, dissatisfaction subsided and his popularity was as great in Britain as in America.

In the process he enriched himself as well his UK stockholders. Lipton had an extra incentive to ingratiate himself to the Americans. Herreshoff 3 Nathanael G.

Herreshoff and William P. We are happy to announce that the series will once again be sponsored by our audience favorites: Points East supports the series with advertising and with input on the series and the speakers themselves.

Read Points East each month for more info on what to expect in the series as well as great stories about our waters, our boats and our people.

Cisco Brewers, Triple Eight Distillery and Nantucket Vineyards have signed on once again to provide beverages to lecture series attendees.

Come to our series at 6pm to grab a drink and chat with our community and remember, drink Cisco! Our first lecture is on October 17th.

It is our Annual Carlton Pinheiro lecture in honor of our former curator. This story is close to home for Herreshoff aficionados and we are excited to hear the stories of these amazing men and their relationship to the Cup.

The full synopsis is below. Until that time, American yachts in the competition had been crewed by professional sailors from Europe.

But in the winter of , emissaries from the New York Yacht Club traveled more than miles by train and steamboat to remote Deer Isle, Maine to recruit an all-Yankee crew.

Sailing Columbia they once again swept the series. Each Inductee is a wonderful representative of our sport and the event.

In , she began her association with the Cup when the Jewetts became the owners of the Metre yacht Intrepid. It was only a broken running backstay in the final race of the defender trials against Courageous that ended the campaign.

Throughout these efforts Lucy was the quiet leader among members of the crew, their families, the team principals, sponsors and supporters.

It was his success in the Soling class that drew him to the attention of Alan Bond who made him skipper of Australia.

Recognizing gaps in the talent pool in Australia necessary to be competitive he selected an American match racing expert, Andy Rose, to be his tactician for the latter stages of the Challenger Selection Series.

When the impossible dream of beating the Defender in a Match became reality for the first time in Robins, starting with a completely clean sheet, totally restructured the harbor facilities in Fremantle, arranging the various sites for the bases for the 13 challengers and four defense syndicates.

In he collected a gold medal at the Paralympic Games in Sydney, an achievement that also secured him the Medal of the Order of Australia.

His life ended prematurely in in a second motor vehicle accident. The Herreshoff Manufacturing Company was most notable for producing fast sailing yachts, including eight America's Cup defenders, and steam-powered vessels.

The museum, situated near Narragansett Bay on the grounds where the manufacturing company once stood, has a collection of over sixty boats including Nathanael Greene Herreshoff's Clara, built in , Harold Vanderbilt's Trivia, and the ACC yacht, Defiant.

According to The Art Newspaper the de Young Museum is one of the most visited art museums in North America, and the 35th-most visited in the world.

Housed in a state-of-the-art, accessible, and architecturally significant facility, it provides valuable art experiences to generations of residents and visitors.

New York hotels are fully booked; large yachts, naval vessels, small craft and a fleet of fifteen large excursion steamers fill the harbor.

Whatever the results, the Cup brings out deep patriotic feelings on both sides of the Atlantic. Even so, a large number of Americans want Lipton to win for the sake of the sport and good feeling between the two countries.

Mower closely witnessed by the designers William Fife Jr. The best sails have been selected. Coming out of Erie Basin her bottom has been polished, dented bow plates straightened, and a slight twist in the rudder corrected.

Charlie Barr has taken aboard Capt. Her best mainsail, cut down about a foot, is ready for the race. Coming out of Erie Basin the bottom has a new and smoother coat of hard white enamel.

Wringe takes aboard Capt. It can be important in the expected light breezes. THE RACES Between August 20 and September 3 nine different attempts will be made to race; the yachts will be started six times, three times failing to finish after sailing more than half the course.

For the the first time in the history of the Cup a race is cancelled because of too much wind and a heavy sea; a recognition of the limits of the extreme design of this fifth and last generation of the Great Ninety-footers.

Winds are usually light accompanied by fog. With a light to moderate breeze she loses by 1 min. Instead he works for the weather berth.

Thousands more gather on Broadway to view postings of the progress of the race. Lipton, himself, entertains guests aboard his yacht ERIN, as he will do on every race day.

I did not expect to get such a licking, but in thinking of success I made the mistake of placing the Shamrock III in her present trim as much faster than the Columbia.

Now I am satisfied she is not as fast, and I would think the Constitution or Columbia would have beaten the Shamrock on Thursday.

I have spent many nights of worry in trying to make the Shamrock III a winner of the cup, and they tell me that I have a beautiful boat.

I don't want a beautiful boat. What I want is a boat to lift the cup, Reliance. Give me a homely boat, the homeliest boat that ever was built, if she can win.

I never stint on money question, and want the best that can be had. I have got the best that can be produced in Great Britain, and it is useless to try again.

Maybe, when a great designer has been produced on the other side I shall try again. I take my hat off to Mr. He is a genius, and I take off my hat to Capt.

They are too much for me. If the day ever comes when England produces a Herreshoff then I will challenge for the cup again.

It will be until then. It is unpleasant to be compelled to admit it, but the brains in boat building are on this side of the water.

Herreshoff is a wizard. His work is wonderful. None can have admired Reliance more than I. She is the best boat by all odds and has won on strict merit.

NGH made no entries in his diary for this period as he was otherwise occupied. Courtesy of Halsey C. Our volunteers at Herreshoff work in our office, in the store, with the sailing school and on the docks.

I work in marketing making our monthly newsletter. I was a bit intimidated at first because it was something way out of my normal element. They put in so much time to make the events as amazing as possible for all of their guests to enjoy.

When the cruise ship comes in there are a lot of people in the museum. The volunteers who help out with the tours amaze me because they remember all of the facts about the photos, history of the boats, and the artifacts.

The Program helps local towns with a wide array of health and human services and they also help high school students find job opportunities.

Other EBCAP students work around the Herreshoff building in the office taking calls, helping out with the sailing school or in the museum store.

Lauren works as the office manager. I interviewed her about her job at Herreshoff. During the work day I answer the phones and I mostly work on the media advertisement for the museum.

What do you like about working here? It is such a nice group of people to work with. How do you feel about volunteering?

Volunteering to me has many benefits to both for you as a volunteer and as well as the community. I also interviewed Evan who works in the store for the museum.

I help out with the tours the museum has and with welcoming everyone. What do you like about working at Herreshoff? Also shows the finer things in life with experience and the exposure to others.

I have sailed at Herreshoff for six years now, and grew up around the water. The sailing school at Herreshoff teaches kids who are new to sailing the basics and also teaches the more experienced sailors in-depth information on seamanship to continue to develop their skills.

While I continue to learn about sailing through Herreshoff, during my time as an instructor I have learned how important it is that we not only teach the students how to sail but also about the Bay and how to care for it and the boats.

The Herreshoff Seamanship Institute is also important because it incorporates the history behind the Herreshoff family and their successes with sailing knowledge the students need to know to become the best sailors they can be.

I personally have benefited greatly from the program. I started with the program as an eight year old student who knew some stuff about sailing by sailing with my neighbors, but not much.

As I went on in the program each summer I became more and more knowledgeable about sailing, and now am a sailing instructor. Last year, I placed second in the Herreshoff Regatta, racing on one of the very boats we use in the program.

As an instructor, I am striving to transfer my knowledge to the students so someday they may be able to compete in regattas and be successful as well.

I would strongly recommend to any parent or grandparent that if their child would like to learn how to sail or better their own sailing and seamanship skills, the Herreshoff Seamanship Institute is the place to be.

It is available on line at library. The campaign will end and the Log will close a little over four months later on Sept. The days from commissioning to the start of the Cup are filled with intense activity for the American contenders.

Nat and the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company must fit out and support all three. The sail makers work Sundays and most evenings through July fabricating, repairing, and recutting sails.

They will return to Bristol once to have the boom and gaff lengthened. There are as many as six sets of Herreshoff sails to be tested.

Iselin also purchases and tests sails made by the City Island loft of the English sail maker Ratsey. Each sail is evaluated and stretched.

Sails are continually cycling between tests and the lofts. The days are intense, Iselin, Capt. Hathaway [Sail loft foreman] aboard to note the defects in sails and rigging.

In PM take off mainsail A. Taken ashore to recut, also the boom and gaff to be lengthend. Spreaders are strengthened by additional wire rigging.

Underway testing sails with Mr. Herreshoff and Hathaway on board. Herreshoff was much pleased with the setting of the sails, and the rigging. Iselin did not think so.

In between, the contenders meet in various places from Sandy Hook to Vineyard Haven. Disappointing on close reach and sail carrying ability. We were very much pleased with this showing.

The Log is concerned that except for June 11 there has been scarcely a day in two weeks to test sails. A new topmast is sent from Herreshoff by the Fall River Line; in place on the 18th and racing resumes on the 20th.

The showing was satisfactory. The elapsed time today beat all previous records. Reaching she has been a disappointment.

In addition to supporting several Cup challenges from San Francisco, she also has worked to ensure that the city is a great host for the 34th Match.

Noel died in Please Join Us for what will be a delightful evening. For reservations call Elisabeth Lavers at ext. Two articles differed from the rest by relating tales of behind the scenes events.

Late the Monday evening before the launching workmen found a candle burning in a socket on a heap of greasy overalls.

Whether placed there by carelessness or malice was not determined, but watchmen were alerted to keep extra lookout for the remainder of the night.

The police were brought in to investigate. The circumstances were similar to a number of candle-initiated incendiary fires set in wooden buildings in Bristol a few years before.

However that firebug had been caught and was incarcerated at the State Insane Hospital in Cranston. Reportedly this decision had been made some ten days before the launch date.

The decision was confirmed when the doors to the construction shop were opened later that day exposing the uncovered stern. John Cobb and his team have launched floats, cleaned-up the waterfront, and prepared boats and moorings in record time.

The waterfront tent is up and already in use for special events. Meanwhile, the Reliance Model Project continues in Building 28 with checking and placement of hardware on the deck and spars.

Sandy Lee and his team have made a significant effort to keep the project moving forward, and over people are following their progress on the Reliance Project blog.

Former Commodore Fred Roy spearheaded this effort to help improve our exhibits. And many others who have held around the campus with gardening, cataloging the collection, welcoming visitors and giving museum tours.

All of our volunteers bring wonderful energy and life to this Museum, and enrich the welcome we give every visitor. A great chance to see what another successful museum does, and to develop some ideas that can work for us.

Our volunteers at the New Beford Whaling Museum Sailing Heals Invites Herreshoff Members to Take Part Sailing Heals, a c3 non-profit that brings cancer patients and their caregivers out for healing sails courtesy of volunteer Host Captains, is busy with their second full season of operation.

This year, they expect to increase that number as they expand their fleet of Host Captains and number of yacht clubs in the program.

A dynamic group of volunteers on our Rhode Island team helps to make all this possible. If you or someone you care about has gone through a traumatic experience related to cancer or another serious illness, please feel free to sign on the VIP Guest Registry at our website: Fife arranges the details of the match that subsequently also govern the and races.

He personally directs all the trials, but on arrival in America becomes sick with inflammatory rheumatism and misses all the Cup races. In Fife has a problem.

The Americans have three potential defenders. The yard, covering 40 acres and employing 2,, dwarfs its American competitor.

Work starts in advance of the challenge and she launches on St. Two hundred fifty guests brought by special train and a local turnout of thousands witness the launching.

Because of shoal water she is launched with camels alongside. Framing and hull are of nickel steel. The entire hull is enameled white.

The aluminum deck is covered with canvas and the mast and boom are galvanized steel. She breaks tradition being the first English boat to use a wheel rather than tiller.

The unusual wheel is made in bicycle fashion with steel spokes and rim- later to become standard in Meter and IACC Cup racers. The March 12 issue of Yachting World reports on the general dissatisfaction with prior challenger trials to furnish reliable estimates of vessel performance.

The trials also show the advantage the wheel gives Capt. Wringe with a clear after deck. On April 17 sailing in knot breeze with gusts to 30 knots Wringe pushes the boat with a club-topsail aloft.

The upper eye of a shroud turnbuckle splits; the mast buckles about 7 feet above the deck. Every part of the rig and sails with the exception of the boom is ruined.

This greatly shortens the trial series. She does not sail again until May 7. Sail maker Ratsey, onboard that day comments: The expedition numbers men.

Both sail yachts are fitted with short ocean rigs. He is given a royal welcome including lunch with President Theodore Roosevelt the following Friday.

The ever-gracious Lipton responds with a tribute to the Bristol boat builders. I say this without in any way underestimating the abilities of Mr.

A number of things were happening at the Herreshoff shops to support an early launching. Riveting was expected to complete April 1st.

Gradually the steel workers were dropping out of line on the topsides and being moved to Morton F. Smoothing the underbody plating with coarse emery had started.

The plating was to receive three burnishings with as many grades of emery; the last one was to be accomplished by the crew when they arrive in Bristol.

The crew reported on Sunday March 29th and was over the side, burnishing the bottom, the following day. Sailmakers were working overtime until nine in the evening.

They did the cutting in the daylight and the sewing and stitching at night. The first set of sails was finished on Wednesday March 18th.

Then a check of history would show that the Herreshoff brothers were biased to launching at the end of the hour Saturday day shift; thereby minimizing the disruptive impact of the crowds on the workweek.

It did not hurt that there was also a good late afternoon high tide for the set time- 5: It was a sunny day with a fine breeze.

Hundreds of visitors arrived by special trains. The Rhode Island Auto Club attended with about 30 machines whose occupants were covered with dust from the fast road travel.

During the hour preceding the launching the streets, yards and wharves for half a mile on either side of the boat shed were literally black with people and every train from Providence brought fresh arrivals.

Each Herreshoff workman was given two tickets entitling him to the privileges of the company wharves and they were out in force with wives and families.

In the water more than one hundred small craft, the majority occupied by newsmen or photographers, were grouped on either side of the marine railway.

RELIANCE loomed above them, resting on her cradle, with her topsides painted a pure white and the underbody glistening like burnished gold; a beauty that should also be a winner.

News reporters appreciated the freedom to view the, up to then, secret yacht, even though it was only for 30 minutes.

The launch platform was profusely decorated in bunting and flowers. The yacht had a necklace of wreaths and as a figurehead a stuffed eagle, holding the black and red colors of Iselin in its beak.

Nora broke the bottle of wine with a hammer saying: Nat Herreshoff, who like most men who do things was the least conspicuous of the many at the launching in his old broad brim felt hat and unpretentious suit, climbed on board and was on the deck ducking his head with the rest of the crew as the yacht just squeezed out of the shop.

As her shapely counter appeared outside the shed dozens of cameras and two moving picture machines were focused on her.

Two small doors over the big door opened and three sailormen brought out an ensign that was unfurled from the stern. The applause that followed was enthusiastically started by members of the Rhode Island Automobile Club; perched like rail birds on a lumber pile on the dock.

As she passed out of the shed the private signals of Mr. Iselin and the owners were raised amidships. They cheered for the crew, for Charlie Barr, and for Nat Herreshoff.

John Palmieri Field Trips Booking Now - Summer Seamanship Program Enrollment Open While reading back issues of the Herreshoff "Chronicles", our printed newsletter from — , I came across an account of how Captain Nat would amuse himself by determining the approximate wind velocity from the deck of a steamer while en route to Bermuda.

His equipment consisted of the back of an envelope, a pencil, and a folding pocket ruler. We teach this and over a dozen other lessons in the Museum or in your classroom.

Call or e-mail for the curriculum enriching offerings we can deliver. Based on the tried and true curriculum we have been using for over ten years we are incorporating US Sailing materials, methods, and certifications wherever it is logical to do so.

For example, we will offer the Basic Keelboat Certification this year for adults and youth. Come for a harbor tour, or come all summer.

You will be enthralled. The Seamanship Program will shine this summer because the After School Mentorship Program has applied more elbow grease, paint and varnish than ever before, and because we have added two donated boats to the fleet.

Our basic trips will depart every Monday and Thursday, returning in the afternoon of the next day. Each trip will include meals and lodging aboard in a nearby cove of Narragansett Bay.

These trips include instruction in seamanship skills such as navigation, or coastal piloting, reefing, and anchoring. David is a phenomenal sailor and his young career already has many accolades.

David is well-prepared to step on any boat and figure out what it takes to go fast. Join hundreds of guests young and old to enjoy entertainment, dinner, dancing, and auctions amidst the hall of boats.

Affordable tickets include open bar. On March 9, the Hall of Boats will be transformed into a winter nautical wonderland. Amidst the history of Herreshoff yachts, the party will tack and jibe through the night with music, dancing, and plenty of libations from the open bar at the windward mark.

A combination of live and silent auction items will be available. Two packages are available for those who want to bring a crowd.

Other notable auction items include a three-day weekend at a ski house in New Hampshire, a beautiful locally hand crafted Nantucket basket by Helen Lee, a Water Rower wooden rowing machine, a chartered sailing cruise on Narragansett Bay, and other local treats generously donated by area restaurants, retailers and salons.

Sailors, hold onto your tillers: Boats finishing after But the aluminum, as was well known at the time of building, would be short lived, and it was.

But it lasted from to with little repairing. All use of aluminum was eliminated; bronze was substituted for the aluminum topsides and the deck was wood supported by steel beams.

As Lukens Steel Co. Its ductility is remarkable considering the high strength. Do not think you could have gotten a better material for the purpose.

Additionally nickel steel was used for the hollow steel mast first in Cup competition , boom and gaff. Nat went to work on both these issues.

Nat developed a new design standard using relatively light longitudinal frames supported on strong fabricated transverse web frames spaced at 80 inches.

It created a stronger, but lighter hull that was less expensive in man-hours and material to build. It also smoothed the hull by replacing the longitudinal lapped joints between hull plates with flush riveted connections.

This is arguably one of his most important and lasting developments. Light longitudinals with strong fabricated web frames remains the standard form of construction of modern ships and aircraft.

Oliver Iselin March 6, Charles Oliver Iselin Papers. On Burnside Street cheerful Museum volunteers come and go from a variety of projects.

All over campus we have volunteers working on exhibits, and the buildings. Some of our volunteers are Roger Williams University students working on several projects as interns.

In the office we have volunteers helping to mail thank you letters to donors, and working on the Reliance Blog, as well as scanning and cataloging an amazing collection of photographs.

Information is abundant at the Museum, and the Education Committee is working with the local and state education departments to make it accessible to students and create knowledge.

We have designed extensive programming and we are building field trip programs as well as programs that we will take to the classroom.

These programs are linked to the latest curriculum which includes introductory engineering. The Summer Seamanship Program begins June 24th.

Here we teach the art of seamanship. Seamanship is an art because it can only be learned by doing. You can study buoyancy, current set and drift, and leeway in the classroom, but you can't learn to shoot a mooring except by practice.

Registration opens on February 1. The lecture series is a great excuse to come by for a gam with old friends and new friends, and to learn something too.

February 28th David Liebenberg will be speaking about how he and his team qualified for the Youth America's Cup. Come support the Museum and enjoy good company, good food, and good music.

All this and exhibits too! Of course we are working on our exhibits while we are closed. The Steam and Fittings Hall is getting explanatory signage, and additional interpretive work.

The Timeline Wall is scheduled for an upgrade also. The Bash, scheduled for March 9th will start at 6: All hands are on deck to help with preparations for what is sure to be the party of the season.

Food stations, with fare supplied by local vendors, and bars will be spread throughout the Museum for guests to frequent and savor.

Also on hand will be a DJ, a photo booth, a games area, and tables with tempting items for a silent auction. A live auction will happen during the event and all guests will want to make sure they are standing by and ready to bid on these amazing items soon to be announced.

An early invitation went out this week and tickets are currently being sold. We are pleased to announce our Title Sponsor - The Bay. This is a wonderful opportunity for the Museum and we look forward to working with The Bay staff on this very exciting event.

Other sponsorship opportunities are still available. This is a great way for local companies to stay connected to a great non-profit organization.

The event will market all sponsors to thousands of people as we post to facebook, send out e-blasts, and remind all of our friends that this is the place to be on the 9th.

See you on the 9th! We accomplish that in a number of ways, one of which is the preservation and display of representative boats of the types designed and built by the Company.

Nat Herreshoff is recognized as the developer of the first successful full-size fin-keel yacht. Both are in storage awaiting the resources to accomplish planned restorations for static display.

WEE WINN had a long and successful race career and was the subject of an admiring description by the English naval architect Uffa Fox as an excellent example of light Herreshoff construction of the s.

Actively sailed in the Cowes area until about , WEE WINN was rescued from a bonfire and donated to the museum by Jonathan Janson in with hull intact, but missing the fin, rudder and spars.

JILT is gaff-rigged sloop with a small cuddy and canoe shaped hull 31 feet length on deck with a 21 foot waterline from which is suspended a deep fin keel fashioned from timber and lead with a modified bulb, and a spade rudder.

He sailed her in the s during summer vacations in Maine. He refit the hull and returned her to service with a plywood deck and larger deckhouse.

The boat again fell on hard times and suffered hull deformation from poppets set on uneven ground without keel blocks.

That is how she arrived at the museum when donated by R. Daniel Prentiss in The restoration plan consists of two parts: The museum is searching for partners for the two historically important boats.

If you are interested in helping the museum return them to their splendor as evidenced by the Kathy Bray prints please let us know.

Two months later, HMCo. The model arrived at the Museum shortly after Thanksgiving, and from subsequent research it appears that the model was made circa for Commodore Ledyard by the important model-builder Gustav Grahn of New York.

Stay tuned for updates and information on upcoming lectures. You can find information on our January lecture with Tim Fallon here.

We are pleased to announce that our lectures are being filmed and the first 2 installments are ready to be viewed online h ere. Our lecture series has been very successful thanks to our wonderful presenters and our great sponsors.

This is a perfect way to share the lectures with an even larger audience. See you on January 24th! See the above graphic.

The Admiralty had been steadily improving its steam launches, but always in the same direction each building on a previous design.

The Herreshoff boat represented an improvement from a different point of departure. The boat weighed only 6 tons, 8 with torpedoes and stores.

The wood underwater planking was more durable than the very thin steel plating that would be admissible to keep the weight down.

The steel skin and curved steel superstructure provided the hull strength and stiffness at the ends for davit storage.

The patented safety coil boiler consisted of feet of 2-inch diameter wrought iron pipe formed into a coil encasing the coal-fired combustion chamber.

The compound engine, placed well forward, was joined by a curved drive shaft to a inch diameter propeller positioned so that it was always in solid water.

The design of the boat, designated TB 73, and its performance were a matter of special interest when John and Nat delivered her to the Royal Victualling Yard on the Thames.

All were highly successful and the Herreshoffs were complimented on the results. The Herreshoff Torpedo Boats: Recent Practice in Marine Engineering.

London, New York, , p. After School Mentorship Update Lots of progress to report from the boat-shop, building Participation is up in our after school program, now in its third year.

Luke graduated from Chariho High School in and studied marine technology there. He is attending CCRI. He was our volunteer junior boat-shop manager this summer, and helped many projects move at a steady pace.

Fairing the hull was incorporated into the painting process, and she came out looking sweet. She is now being offered for sale, as we have received two boat donations this year!

She is generously on loan from Larry Geuss and Pam Lenehan for sailing school use. We have scraped and re-painted her bilges, floorboards, aft and forward compartments.

We took a turn on the keelbolts while we were there — all secure. Then we have put two coats of varnish all over, and six more on the seats!

We also faired and painted her topsides. FROLIC, also on loan for sailing school use is getting a replacement starboard seat support, interior white paint, and six coats of varnish.

We are also fashioning a replacement boom from a larger left over piece of fir, repairing a tiller, building oak boom supports, and keeping the shop clean for the benefit of all.

Here is their read on it: We get to work with them on reducing RELIANCE plans to scale, geometry problems associated with boat-building, and drafting among the math and engineering problems we face.

So you see, Building 28 can be a "happening place" worth your visit! Some of the activities of the past year are pictured on the enclosed collage.

While these are significant, it is even more important that we are positioned for greater success in In fact, we cannot accomplish so much without your support.

Our membership and visitor attendance are growing. Together, these tell the story of the people and the boats that had such a tremendous impact on yachting and manufacturing history.

With your continuing support, we can try to ensure that people will witness these accomplishments by preserving, documenting, and presenting them.

We want you to be part of this dynamic change. I ask and thank you for your generous support of our mission to educate and inspire. We look forward to seeing you at the Museum in the near future.

All best wishes for the upcoming holidays. A new challenge from Lipton is expected. He designs the most powerful Cup vessel ever.

He incorporates within its hull and rig improvements from his previous designs. She will achieve the fastest time over the mile course.

In early September he writes C. Oliver Iselin that the model is very nearly complete, but Iselin pushes him to do more. Nat responds with a second design that is more powerful and more extreme in type.

Shortly after the contract to build the defender is signed on Oct. One of the first construction drawings is the mold for the lead keel that is to be built on the marine railway cradle in the South Shop.

This is a major structure as it must contain the molten lead until it cools to a solid. The form is built and on Nov. This is one month earlier than previous defenders.

Construction of the new defender will be pushed to achieve an early delivery. Our unique collection sparks the imagination with dynamic, interactive activities and investigations.

We are lucky to have a highly qualified Education Committee at the Museum with interests in public schools, charter schools, private schools, and home schooling.

The Assistant Superintendent of Bristol Warren Schools has also been working with us to further enhance programming and increase visitation from school groups.

We provide numerous different school programs for students K, as well as collaborations with Bryant College and Roger Williams students. Look to our website for the new, improved outline and offerings, which include: How Fast Can a Boat Go?

The Points East Staff have been on hand to help with planning, prep and advertising and Cisco arrives at each event to stock us with cold beverages for our guests.

Thank you to our sponsors for their support and enthusiasm. We are looking forward to a great lineup.

This lecture is on October 25th. Doors at 6pm — Lecture at 7pm. The Nathanael Greene Herreshoff Model Room holds a collection unique in the world - Captain Nat's models used to create his designs, including his America's Cup defenders.

The models are works of art in themselves, and are testimony to Captain Nat's genius as a naval architect. Guests are welcome to tour the N. Herreshoff Model Room following the presentation.

The lecture is titled The Herreshoff Torpedo Boats: Innovation at the Beginning of the Modern US Navy - Forget the stories you thought you knew about Herreshoff torpedo boats- innovations were adapted from yacht designs; battles with local Navy inspectors drove the decision to leave the business.

New team research reveals the influence of a strong Narragansett Bay connection and the Herreshoff brothers 20 year effort to dominate the torpedo boat business with innovative designs and a business plan to nullify the influence of the Navy bureaucracy and their specifications.

Stay tuned for more information and see you soon at the Museum. Lipton, with a seemingly bottomless purse, was challenging every other year.

Defending the Cup had become an expensive proposition. Each new challenge required the NYYC to form a syndicate to build a new defender, as well as additional syndicates to recommission prior year Herreshoff-built Cup winners to campaign against the new boat for the right to defend.

Oliver Iselin to manage the new boat syndicate, Capt. Nat Herreshoff to design and participate in leading the campaign, and the redoubtable Charlie Barr to skipper the boat.

Iselin had committed to the task very early in Nat and Barr were the problem. In the spring, when Iselin corresponded with Capt.

Nat about the forthcoming challenge he received a disturbing response. The Cup defender would be very demanding of his time on top of an already full order book, his wife was seriously ill and he was suffering from rheumatism.
