Thanks for sharing that bit of sailing trivia Rick. I knew JFK had a presidential sailboat back in the early 60s, but couldn't recall the name (since I was in St. Marys, a Newport, RI parochial elementary school at the time).

JFK and Jackie were actually married in St. Marys Church, which was attached to our school. It was a huge event for me while I was there. My parents have a photo of me standing along the main doors with my classmates as they exited the church . . . all of us dressed in our standard parochial uniforms - grey trousers (skirts on girls of course), white button down shirts, and plaid ties.
