Yacht Club Stories PDF Print

The rich history of American sailing has grown and developed from yacht clubs. Every yacht club and sailing organization has a unique story to tell. And within these stories lay tales of the feats of individual sailors, events that shaped America’s history, adventures of determined characters, achievements by juniors, and amazing ideas from those that grew our sport from wooden boats, small boathouses, and rocky shores across the nation.The National Sailing Hall of Fame is committed to gathering those stories, presenting them to the public and archiving them for future generations.
