A propos de cet article

With a chapter by Herbert L. Stone. 395 pages, 16 plates, 9 maps, cloth, very good. From the Mystic Seaport museum website: 'Alfred F. Loomis (1890 Aug 23-1968 Mar 26) was a distinguished yachtsman and writer. He was a member of Yachting magazine's staff for 34 years, and was senior associate editor for that publication at the time of his death. In addition to a wealth of articles and news stories he wrote a monthly column, "Under the Lee of the Longboat," which, over the years, became an international institution. Under the pseudonym of "Spun Yarn" he was a tireless campaigner in behalf of the yachtsman's rights and traditions. One of the highlights of his column was the reporting of potential candidates for membership of his fictional organization, "The Lee Rail Vikings," a select group of yachtsman noted for their bad conduct and poor sportsmanship. Alfred Loomis, by a yardstick, was the dean of ocean racing historians. He wrote voluminously, and his book Ocean Racing is a classic on the subject.'. N° de réf. du libraire 17290
