About this Item

Clean unmarked copy. 1 light crease to the spine. Securely packaged! "There were vessels referred to as "yachts" on Lake Ontario in the eighteenth century. These were government vessels, part of the Provincial Marine, used for carrying dispatches and passengers. The Toronto Yacht, an armed "yacht" or government vessel for the use of the civil administration of the province built at the mouth of the Humber in 1792 is an example.These seamen were rooted in all the best of sailing's traditional skills. They refined and perfected those skills, and raised sailing performance to a higher level than ever achieved before. The cream of those who did this became the great skippers of racing yachts. They were a small select breed of men with a halo of fame that success in sport brings. They were not just seamen, but artists of handling. They were called Yachtsmen." a6.
