A trib­ute to the ‘Old Girls’

Yachts International - - Engage - To In­quire about sub­scrip­tions

Your tim­ing was ex­cel­lent. Part of my Vet­er­ans Day was spent read­ing, and then re-read­ing, “Ruse on the Chesapeake” [Novem­ber/De­cem­ber is­sue]. It took me back many years to a much sim­pler world, but one that was in some ways more com­pli­cated. Trans­fer­ring the Pres­i­dent of the United States from Wash­ing­ton, D.C., to Tehran un­der a cloak of se­crecy would be much sim­pler to­day and done in a few hours, but the story would not have been half as good. How nice it is to see your mag­a­zine pay trib­ute in such a fit­ting way to our proud mar­itime her­itage and re­mind­ing us of the debt we owe to some of those great “old girls” of the past.

Iwould like to com­mend you on the fresh con­tent of your mag­a­zine. It has gone beyond the trophy show­place of the past to ac­tu­ally ad­dress is­sues that in­ter­est most, if not all, yachts­men. It presents a good mix of sto­ries and com­men­tary. Keep up the great work!
