Don't forget to view our newest acquisition to the HMM boat collection: She is a gift from the Moody family in Oklahoma and is in pristine condition.

Saturday morning presentations will begin at hours at Roger Williams University. Are you a twelve meter fan? Then you won't want to miss David Pedrick, N. Champagne and birthday cake will be served.

Saturday evening dinner will be on your own. The Herreshoff Marine Museum is mindful of our CYS audience and its quest for greater knowledge and depth regarding classic yacht traditions. We are in a unique position to share that knowledge with you. We strive to place that quest within a meaningful context and format at our symposia. We welcome your feedback and comments. We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones at CYS Please join us for a delightful and fun weekend in May.

Keep in mind that seating is limited. Please register online at www. We want to thank all the sponsors, donors, committee members, and ticket-buyers for making this winter fund-raising event a fabulous evening. We are also thankful that the weather, which threatened to snow us out, ultimately relented and provided a nice winter scene with no new snow.

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. The people in attendance had a most enjoyable evening and at the same time provided essential support to the Museum.

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.

Food offerings this year will be presented by a collection of local restaurants and vendors who will bring the tastes of New England together at our unique location on Bristol Harbor, complimented with three full open bars serving beverages by New England producers.

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 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.

So mark your calendar to attend the 6th Classic Yacht Symposium the weekend of May , Access courtesy of Halsey C. She won the delayed Cup race in The Museum has been hosting 2 days of FREE admission every year — one in the spring and one in the fall. The event was a huge success as we saw more visitors in one day than we have ever had before. Dyer even opened the model room for the lucky guests. Thank you for coming and making this day such a huge success.

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.

Today we want to share with you an exciting opportunity to participate in the Herreshoff Centennial Celebration. As was done in CYS we are featuring classic Nat Herreshoff designs that are celebrating years. Newport 29 [Often hailed as Capt. We are offering all to participate in CYS by submitting a paper of comments and experiences to be published in the CYS Proceedings.

The papers are due by Dec. HMCo partnership in was to do no advertising; rather let their products advertise themselves.

In August President U. Grant visited General Amos Burnside at his residence in Bristol. 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.

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.

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. Opening Day is a great day to come by with your friends and family to celebrate spring and our amazing museum.

All Day Membership Desk - Our members support our day to day operations and all of our amazing programs. All Day - Learn to Row! Museum tour with Exhibitions Chair, David Curtin. See you on the 28th! Estimates ran from April 7 to April 20 or later. 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.
