Yachting Historical Society

The initial meeting of the Yachting Historical Society will be held Thursday, May 17, at 2 p.m. at the IYRS Library, 449 Thames St. The group plans to look into the boats, the people, the places, the developments and the events that have defined the sport for the past 200 years, to share the historical moments we do know of and to look into the ones we would like to know more about. Power and sail, old or not so old, there are thousands of stories waiting to be shared or discovered or expanded upon. If you are curious about the story and background of one of the world's oldest recreational pastimes, especially the American part, consider joining them.
