The Museum was transformed into a magic venue with food stations supplied by local restaurants and caterers, bars, special lighting, games and music. Nearly 50 people, including volunteers and sponsors, worked tirelessly without compensation to help ensure that the party would be a success.

He is also the co-author with Luigi Lang of an authoritative history of the 12 Metre Class. The errors include incorrectly reporting the timing and origins of the designs of the two boats, not recognizing there were two Emmons H.
Nelson and Robert W. This view is born out by the following exchange of letters and subsequent deliveries: Marblehead envisioned a boat of about 20 ft 6 in.
D, carrying sq. It is strange they cannot realize how much better in every way a boat with more waterline and shorter over all is- better sea boat in rough time, always pleasant to sail, easier handled, less cost, stronger and consequently longer lived.
Any conclusions beyond this must await the March report. You will learn much about the three Herreshoff Centennial classes and the genius and fortitude of the man who created them.

Last year, both were hugely successful and this year promises the same. The event kicks off at 6: The goal of the program has been to teach students the concepts of wooden boat construction and basic hand tool skills, while gaining an attention to detail and an ability to follow a project through to the end.
Through the past few months each of the students has gained new skills and learned to solve problems. Our curriculum began with basic woodworking skills, using tools such as hand planes, chisels, and saws.
As the students have gained proficiency in each of these tools, our projects have become more complex. We have also done a fair amount of work on the sailing school boats, including varnish work, repairs to sole boards and replacing hardware.
As of this writing, the students have finished building their own toolboxes, and were able to make wooden turning block tree ornaments in time for Christmas. The next few weeks will bring a half model project, along with a frame replacement and cauking lessons on the sailing school fleet.
My goals for this class have been simple. I hope these students will learn how to use some of the traditional hand tools used in wooden boat construction, and to use them safely. I want them to gain a sense of accomplishment in completing tasks and projects that they may not have thought they were capable of.
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 ratingthen retired to specialize in brightwork as he seasonally traveled the East Coast aboard his boat swith 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.Children’s Dream Quilt “My dream is no more people dying.” A simple sentiment, expressed by six year-old Darianna.
When school lockdowns become the norm, when stopping to consider our safety at a neighborhood playground becomes second nature, the dreams of our children dim. Intro duction. Thomas Kuhn coined the modern definition of the word “paradigm” in The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, published in A paradigm, according to Kuhn's definition, is a conceptual model that explains a set of scientific observations, which creates a framework to fit the observations.

Hearst preferred to run a long race on the American Yacht Club’s mile course in the deeper waters of Long Island Sound. NORWOOD preferred a shorter race in the more protected and shallower waters of the Hudson River; it was questionable whether NORWOOD could handle the strain or maintain full steam pressure over the longer course in open water.
