The Wianno Senior Centennial Book is now Available
The Wianno Senior Story: A Century on
Nantucket Sound will fascinate anyone interested in the history of American
small-boat racing and of Cape Cod. Designed and built by the Crosbys of
Osterville, the Wianno Senior was first launched in 1914. With its
centerboard and gaff rig, the boat soon proved perfectly adapted to the
shallow, current-swept waters of Nantucket Sound. Now, a hundred years
Wianno Senior is still flourishing, among the longest-lived one-designs in
America. Many are familiar with the boat because President John F. Kennedy
owned one. But thatís just one aspect of this wide-ranging, centennial
history. Here is the Wianno Senior seen through the eyes of a writer widely
recognized for his devotion to the history of American yachting and small
craft, his careful research,
and his storytelling skills. The book is profusely
illustrated with important historical images and the photographs of several
of todayís most accomplished yachting photographers. The Wianno Senior Story
will find a homeport on the bookshelf of anyone who appreciates beautiful
boats, Cape Cod, and a tale well-told.
