Call for Papers for the Herreshoff Marine Museum’s 8th Annual Classic Yacht Symposium

HMM’s biennial Classic Yacht Symposium is “like Woodstock for Classic Yacht enthusiasts.”

The 8th Annual Classic Yacht Symposium is scheduled for March 22-24, 2019.  Over the course of three days, attendees will visit restoration shops to ogle projects in progress, debate the definition of “classic”, attend sessions with a variety of scholarly papers on a range of subjects presented by their authors, and bond with fellow classic yacht enthusiasts over adult refreshments.

CYS is unique in its special collaborative atmosphere because the event attracts a mix of owners, designers, builders and enthusiasts who gather biannually to celebrate the fine yachts of a bygone era and share their thoughts on the challenges of preserving, restoring, replicating, sailing and racing them.

Three Special Days of Classic Yachts including…

  • Ten Great Papers by Experts/Owners 
  • Shop Visits: Active Projects
  • Evening Panel Discussion
  • Museum Campus Visit & Exhibits
  • Evening Social Events

For 2019, CYS will be jointly produced by the Herreshoff Marine Museum and the Classic Yacht Owners Association.
