Re: Bristol Yachts 50th Anniversery 2016

Matt and I met with Clinton Pearson and Halsey Herreshoff on Friday to go over the 4 day event schedule in detail and confirm their attendance. In our next news letter we will be releasing the event Program. The video is in it's entirety and a bit rough and long, 1.5 hours. But it has some great interaction between Clint and Halsey, at one point they talked about Ted Hood. If I can find the time I will edit the video and pull out some highlights and do a short video.

Re: Bristol Yachts 50th Anniversery 2016

I've recently come across a picture of me sailing my Bristol 24 (my first boat) in New York harbor that was seen coast to coast live on the TODAY SHOW back on July 4th 1986. Which was the 100th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty. I'll try and send you a copy by PM with the particulars how it happened. Still have many fond memories of that Bristol including sailing it up from Long Island to visit the factory to pick up a replacement part.

I certainly will but, I think I'll let Delta-T have first dibs on it for the Bristol 50th Anniversary celebration before it gets posted on the Internet.

Re: Bristol Yachts 50th Anniversery 2016

Another clarification is needed. I just had a guy ask if he was registered for the event. If you have not mailed in the registration form and a check, then no you are not registered. Three weeks left to register, deadline is 6/1/2016.

Re: Bristol Yachts 50th Anniversery 2016

Is there going to be another get together next year to cerebrate being closed for 20 years?

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
