Heritage Dinner 2013

Fast Yachts 1812-2012

Guest Speaker:  Steve Killing

The talk will cover the historical quest for speed under sail, when your life depended on it, to the recreational quest for speed, where sailors just behave like their life depends on it. In particular the move from single-hulled vessels to double-hulled catamarans saw a huge leap in speed potential, so large that the New York Yacht club outlawed, for over 100 years, any boat with more than one hull. Current projects to be discussed include two catamarans for different clients that are using  modern materials and outlandish concepts to push the speed barriers. Sailing with crash helmets, and flying over the water is the norm in this new breed of boats.

  1. Hi there, I think your website could be having
    browser compatibility issues. Whenever I take a
    look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Aside from that, excellent blog!

  2. Greetings from Los angeles! I’m bored to tears at work so I
    decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch
    break. I really like the knowledge you provide here
    and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my phone ..
    I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, awesome blog!

  3. When I initially commented I appear to have clicked on the
    -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment.
    There has to be a means you can remove me from that service?
    Thank you!
