it’s that simple

There’s always something new to learn about boats and boating. In this issue alone, I picked up anchoring tips from Dan Parrott (page 28), a better understanding of the engineering in a new outboard system (page 54) and a history lesson in disasters at sea (page 66). But perhaps most interesting was the enlightening conversation I had with Bruce Halabisky a few weeks ago. Bruce and his wife, Tiffany, who live on Orcas Island in Washington, received the 2018 Blue Water Medal from the Cruising Club of America. They were recognized for their 11-year circumnavigation in a gaff-rigged cutter with their two daughters, both of whom were born during the cruise. Their voyage began and ended on Vancouver Island, and included three Atlantic crossings, 30 countries and over 50,000 ocean miles. In…

GEOGRAPHY LESSON I’ve been a subscriber for many years. While I sail in the un-salted Great Lakes, I truly enjoy your magazine. When I got the May issue, I was eager to read “Just Yesterday” because it had a picture of the launch of the sailing yacht Detroit from the Detroit Yacht Club. The caption says the yacht was photographed at a Lake Michigan boatyard, but I don’t think that’s quite right. Detroit is situated on the Detroit River between Lake St. Clair and Lake Erie. While it’s possible to get to Lake Michigan by boat, it’s over 200 miles as the crow flies and significantly more by water. The launch scene in the photo most likely took place at what is today the William G. Milliken State Park and Harbor…

underwater eternity

Whether you realize it or not, if you regularly set waypoints between New Jersey and Georgia, then you’ve probably been cruising right over the history of the New York City Subway system. An exhibit of photographs called “Sea Train” that recently opened at the New York Transit Museum’s Grand Central Gallery documents a project that the city’s transit authority undertook between August 2001 and April 2010. In a nutshell, the city gave a bunch of old Subway cars to a half-dozen states so the cars could be dropped into the Atlantic Ocean, all throughout the waters where boaters typically cruise. More than 2,500 of the “Redbird” cars, which were built in the 1950s and early ’60s, and “Brightliner” cars, which made their debut on New York City Subway platforms in 1964, were…

they’re baaaaack

If you still yearn for the good ol’ days when the America’s Cup was sailed on 12 Metre yachts in Newport, Rhode Island, and sailors from around the world milled around Thames Street, then you may want to mark your calendar. From July 8 to 13, the International 12 Metre Class will hold its 2019 World Championship in Newport. The gathering is expected to be the largest-ever of 12 Metre yachts in the United States, with more than two dozen boats from seven countries. The races will be sailed on Rhode Island Sound, where nine America’s Cup competitions were held from 1958 through 1983. The event will include boats built between 1928 and 1987, including seven America’s Cup defenders and challengers. Two of them, Intrepid and Courageous, twice successfully defended the Cup. This…

homegrown talent

Rhode Island has a long history of building America’s Cup yachts, starting with Vigilant, built in 1893 at the Herreshoff Manufacturing Co. in Bristol. The New York Yacht Club’s American Magic campaign, which is challenging for the 2021 America’s Cup, is continuing the legacy. “We decided not to use a commercial boatbuilding operation,” says Rob Ouellette, chief operations officer at American Magic. “We wanted to have complete control, so in April 2018 we leased a building in Bristol, Rhode Island, but it was hard to find composite boat-builders who were not employed by other builders.” At the time, American Magic had seven or eight people on its build team and needed more workers to get a prototype built for testing. Ouellette toured the IYRS School of Technology & Trades in Newport and…
