The 2014 Classic Yacht Symposium will be held May 2-4, 2014 at the Herreshoff Marine Museum in Bristol RI.
Your Opportunity to Participate in the CYS 2014 and Herreshoff Centennial Class Celebration
An international group of talented authors are hard at work preparing papers for CYS 2014 on a range of new and interesting subjects. Meanwhile the Herreshoff Marine Museum/SNAME team is engaged in planning a full range of activities that have come to embody CYS. Look for more information about CYS 2014 on this site in the coming months.
Today we want to share with you an exciting opportunity to participate in the 2014 Herreshoff Centennial Celebration. As was done in CYS 2012 we are featuring classic Nat Herreshoff designs that are celebrating 100 years. In 2012 there was just one Herreshoff Centennial Class- ALERION (HMCo 718). This year we have three Herreshoff Centennial Classes, all derived in some way from ALERION.
Newport 29 [Often hailed as Capt. Nat’s best all-around design]
Buzzards Bay 25 [Capt. Nat’s favorite design according to son Sidney]
Buzzards Bay Boys Boats (H12½) [Herreshoff Mfg. Co.’s most popular design]
There are literally thousands of people who have a connection to these boats including yacht clubs with Centennial Class fleets, owners, former owners, builders, restorers, sailors, and admirers. We are offering all to participate in CYS 2014 by submitting a paper of comments and experiences to be published in the CYS 2014 Proceedings. Don’t miss this opportunity to have your words and images about the Centennial Classes recorded for posterity. The papers are due by Dec. 31, 2013. Instructions for paper preparation and submission as well as copies of selected CYS 2012 ALERION Centennial Papers are attached for your guidance.
