Royal Yacht Squadron
If one is interested in sailing and reading about sailing, one knows who John Rousmaniere is. And when he talks at the Royal Yacht Squadron in Cowes about history connected to the America’s Cup, well, what can I say? ‘My agent’ got me a place at the dinner table and a seat in the library to listen to what John had to say about the people in the competition’s history that have determined its rules and regulations, people like Harold S. Vanderbilt or Nathanael Herreshoff.
I was like the kid in the candy store.
If you are interested in John Rousmaniere's knowledge on seamanship and books about sailing and nautical history, I suggest you search his name; it will be hard to choose a book!
