The Real Story behind The Finest Hours movie – and more Rescues

2016-05-25-1464152432-7343633-FinestBoat6-thumbPresented by Lt/C Bob Reilly AP from Mid-Hudson Squadron

In 2016 Disney produced “The Finest Hours”, the true story of the U.S. Coast Guard’s most daring sea rescue. 

This presentation delves into the reasons that caused two ships to split apart within hours of each other on that date. The mid-latitude cyclone, the new design, and construction method, and the inexperienced builders all contribute to the accidents. Also covered are the four rescue attempts (3 at least somewhat successful) where 36-foot motorized lifeboats tackle 70-foot seas, and blinding snow & rain to find the four boat sections and save over 72 of 84 sailors.

Wednesday, November 15 at 7:30 pm.

All USPS and GBYC members and friends are invited to this extraordinary presentation – with our usual light refreshments

‘J Class Yachts ~ their History from the 30’s til Today’

The J Class has its roots in the oldest sporting race in the world, The America’s Cup. This international event was born from an annual race around the Isle of Wight in Great Britain, hosted by the Royal Yacht Squadron, that was originally called the ‘100 Guinea Cup’.

Our expert speaker Rick Delfosse of Norwalk Cove and Rex Marine will cover the history of these incredible 130 foot yachts with photos from his personal files and movie clips of old.

Come and hear about such beauties as Shamrock V and how Endeavour was rescued from the mud, as well as the renaissance of the new J Class yachts that raced in Bermuda and Newport this year.
