The following excerpt is from the website of Mystic Seaport: '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. He was the author of many other books. One of the best known to American yachtsmen was Ranging the Maine Coast.". N° de réf. du libraire 19198
