9781496057716: Boys of the Bay

1976, Born to Run was on the radio, Marathon Man was on the big screen and the country was celebrating two centuries of independence. The sailing team at the Naval Academy had been moribund for decades but a new man at the top, Captain Alexander Graham Bell Grosvenor, had attracted enough talented men, money and boats to build a racing fleet unrivaled anywhere. He gave his midshipmen competitive yachts and sent them out for a summer of sailing races and socializing in the Yacht Clubs from Annapolis to Halifax. Boys of the Bay is the story of boys afloat and ashore during that historic summer. On the water their life was a constant swirl of boats, women and beer. Ashore, in the confines of Bancroft Hall, Academy life was much less urbane. Plebe training was the business at hand, hot was the weather and heavy was the discipline. For 131 years the Academy was exclusively male. This summer, the Bicentennial of the Union, women were admitted for the first time. The equation had changed forever at the Academy and this story is about some of the men, and women, who were there.

About the Author:

The author is a graduate of the Naval Academy, Class of 1977. As one of the oldest men in his class and a former enlisted man in the Navy he had a unique perspective of the action in the Hall and out on the Bay where he competed on the Navy Sailing Team. During his four years at the Academy he stretched the boundaries of the disciplinary system and was captain of the Yawl Team his senior year. Tom White went into the Navy Supply Corps after graduation and spent five years with a Seabee battalion before he hung up his uniforms for good and attended the Business School at Carnegie-Mellon University. He has stayed active for decades racing large boats and small with his classmates from the Academy on the East Coast. Tom is now settled in Pittsburgh where he is a business consultant and real estate investor. He is married to Catherine White and has twin sons and one daughter.
