Sailing in Bermuda : Sail Racing in the Nineteenth Century - J. C. Arnell

£9.99

Product description

This book is in very good condition. The dust jacket is present and intact. There is slight foxing on the outside edges of the pages due to age, but the pages are otherwise clean and unmarked. This copy is signed by the author. The inscription reads: 'To Dudley Walker, To remind him of his first visit to Bermuda. Jack Arnell, 8th May 1985'. The book also contains the original bill of sale from the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club, to Dudley Walker, and a temporary membership card used by Dudley Walker to access the club.

The history of sail racing in Bermuda has been published by the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club to mark its centennial in 1982. From the origins of comeptitive sailing, when the Bermuda Gazette of 18 May 1793 reported that "Upon the whole every person of judgement must allow that the people of Bermuda are wonderfully dextrous in the art of boat sailing," it describes aspects of sailing which are unique to this small island. The book chronicles the events and proceedings of sail racing in the nineteenth century and tells of the development of the "Bermuda Rig", which has been proven to be the most efficient rig for windward sailing in the history of naval architecture. Six appendices list information on every named sloop, dingey and skiff which will be valuable to other researchers in maritime history.
