Storms or Trophies or History: Why Do We Sail?
August 16 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
A talk by John Rousmaniere.
Challenging, romantic, and (some think) strange—the challenges and appeals of sailing always inspire entertaining discussion. The debate will be reviewed by John Rousmaniere, along with a few sea stories and tips for safe sailing.
A widely experienced sailor, Rousmaniere has written widely about the sport in books that include Fastnet, Force 10 (about a storm he survived), The Annapolis Book of Seamanship (a “boating bible”), and histories of races and organizations, including the Fishers Island Yacht Club.
