Sailing at Fishers: A History of the Fishers Island Yacht Club
In this co-publication of Mystic Seaport and the Fishers Island Yacht Club, noted yachting author John Rousmaniere recounts the history of recreational boating at Fishers Island, New York, with special emphasis on the Fishers Island Yacht Club, which was founded in 1928. Though small, this club has been home to many highly competitive sailors and is closely associated with several noted designs, including the Fishers Island One Design, Fishers Island Sound 31, Herreshoff 23-foot Class, Luders 16, Rhodes 27, Bulls Eye, and International One Design. Classic powerboats are also featured in this social history of the evolution of a boating organization.
