THE GREAT ATLANTIC: The First 85 Years by John Rousmaniere
Third-generation Atlantic sailor, yachting historian and award-winning author John Rousmaniere has written a fascinating history of the Atlantic to commemorate our first 85 years. Starting with Starling Burgess, the birth of the class and its immediate success, John takes us through the years as the boat develops into the efficient fiberglass-hulled racing machine that we now enjoy. Each fleet has its own chapter, with anecdotes about some of the colorful characters that have populated the class. Fully illustrated with great images, from rare early Levicks and Rosenfelds to the color action photos and fun portraits of today.
Limited edition hardcover book: 96 pages, 11x11 ins; 139 illustrations; publ. 2014
