Halsey Herreshoff at the Northwest Maritime Center – Oct. 3


Distinguished as the most active America’s Cup sailor during the 12 Meter era, for over 25 years Halsey Herreshoff was a crewman as bowman, crew boss, or navig…ator in six campaigns, and sailed in four America’s Cup matches.

We are pleased to host this special presentation with a veteran worldwide sailor, member of America’s Cup Hall of Fame, and third generation Herreshoff naval architect and engineer.

Herreshoff’s presentation will review a brief history of the America’s Cup, this year’s AC competition finals (September 7-21), and sailing techniques and boat design from a unique, popular and successful Herreshoff perspective.
