After Saturday's presentations at RWU, you are invited back to HMM for a celebration of HMCo.'s centennial designs. The Herreshoff Marine Museum is mindful of our CYS audience and its quest for greater knowledge and depth regarding classic yacht traditions.
We are in a unique position to share that knowledge with you.
Each stop on the tour will run approximately one hour and will be followed by a Q&A session.
You may then proceed to HMM where you can pick up the CYS 2014 Proceedings Booklet and CD, view the new exhibits on display and enjoy a welcome cocktail reception.
