A Berth to Bermuda, by John Rousmaniere
Description: One Hundred Years of the World's Classic Ocean Race! When it was first sailed in 1906, the Bermuda Race made the sea a playground by creating a new sport-ocean racing by amateur sailors in normal boats. Sponsored by the Cruising Club of America and the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club, the race is now so glamorous that sailors' ears perk up when it is mentioned, so difficult that participants ask themselves "Why am I out here again?" and so addictive that they keep coming back for this every-other-year event. In this lavish, heavily illustrated book, yachting historian (and Bermuda Racer) John Rousmaniere tells the story of the remarkable sailors, the great boats, the tactics, the Gulf Stream ordeal, and the lure of Bermuda that makes this the world's classic ocean race. Published by The Cruising Club of America and Mystic Seaport. ISBN 0-939511-7. Hardbound.

Sleek, by John Rousmaniere

Here, taken between 1890 and 1954, yachting historian John Rousmaniere interprets 79 images that speak to the artistry of boats and the photography that captures them. Sleek and elegant describes both the vessels themselves and the striking photographic images. 9 1/4" x 11 3/4" hardcover book of 144 pages.

In a Class by Herself: Bolero, by John Rousmaniere
Description: Not only is Bolero "the best of her class" (as someone said of her), but she was created and restored by a diverse company of people who were the best of their classes. Bolero is one of those cultural heirlooms that is constantly being rediscovered in ways that would astonish even her creators, and her story is of a vast and varied world of laughter and tears, triumph and failure. The same boat that was featured in Time magazine and broke a Bermuda Race record was nearly wrecked on Cape Hatteras and, only 15 years ago, was rotting away in a Florida canal. Today, magnificently restored, she again wins races and turns heads, just as she did upon her launch in 1949. 9" x 11", 168 pages, color illustrations, 2006. ISBN 0-939511-13-4. Hardbound.

All This and Sailing, Too, by Olin J. Stephens
Description: Olin Stephens was the most successful racing-yacht designer of the twentieth century, a legend in his own time almost from the day in 1931 when he and his brother Rod and father Roderick Sr. finished a transAtlantic race to England in the revolutionary 52' yawl Dorade a full two days ahead of the competition. His autobiography begins with youthful family sailing, moves on to Six-Meter designs, to J-Boat experience in the 1930s, to war work in the 1940s, to America's Cup design and sailing from 1958 to 1983, and to a fleet of great cruising and racing yachts in between. This personal history of Olin and his brother Rod, of the renowned design firm of Sparkman & Stephens, and of international yachting in this century, is informed, introspective, and eloquent. 8" x 10" cloth bound book of 272 pages, with 70 illustrations and index. Also available in an Italian edition.

Flying the Colors
Description: Book about the unseen treasures of nineteenth- century American Marine Art. Not since the first major publications on this subject over three decades ago -- among them A History of American Marine Painting, 1968, and the exhibition catalogs for "Seascape and the American Imagination," 1975, at the Whitney Museum and "American Marine Painting," 1976, at the Virginia Museum -- have we seen such a magisterial visual survey of the field. In the interim much has been added to the literature, including studies of important neglected figures like William Trost Richards and William Stanley Haseltine, as well as focused exhibitions devoted to lesser but appealing names like James A. Suydam and Francis A. Silva. Alan Granby and Janice Hyland add to this rich legacy with new attention to the prolific and versatile career of James Buttersworth, especially his beautifully drawn racing compositions and harbor scenes. The authors also reevaluate the maritime paintings of Antonio Jacobsen, with his accomplished handling of ship rigging and magnificent seas, as well as the colorful and charming folk variations of ship portraiture in the popular work of James Bard. There are illuminating sections here devoted to American artists painting American ships and harbors. Additionally, there are artists who worked abroad in England, Europe and the Orient who created images depicted here of American vessels and foreign ports. Classic examples along with rediscovered unknown works by key artists like Robert Salmon and Fitz Henry Lane are by no means neglected. EXTRA SHIPPING CHARGES WILL APPLY
