Deer Isle’s Undefeated America’s Cup Crews: Humble Heroes from a Downeast Island

by Gabrielson, Mark J.

CAD $21.95

In 1895, emissaries from the New York Yacht Club travelled to Deer Isle, Maine-a remote island in Penobscot Bay-to recruit the nation’s best sailors for an "All American" crew. The 20-odd fishermen then sailed Defender under skipper Hank Haff for the America’s Cup, and beat the competition in a difficult and controversial series. The chance came again in ’99, and once again Deer Isle’s fisherman sailors triumphed. These crews are still considered one of the best American sail-racing teams ever assembled.
