Llewellyn Howland III will present Ready About: The Business and Pleasure of Yachting on Buzzards Bay on Tuesday, April 26 at 7:30 p.m. in the Cook Memorial Theater at the New Bedford Whaling Museum. This third program in the popular 4-part Sailors’ Series begins with a pre-lecture reception at 6:30 p.m. in the Jacobs Family Gallery.
Mr. Howland will talk about some of the major figures in the sport of yachting on Buzzards Bay – designers, builders, sail makers, and sailing professionals, as well as owners and amateur skippers and crew. He will also discuss the ways in which economics, technology, and social and political change have influenced the sport and the shape and function of yachts themselves.
A native of South Dartmouth, where his uncle Waldo Howland operated the Concordia Company boatyard, Llewellyn Howland III is an editor, yachting historian, and antiquarian bookseller. He served as historical consultant to the New Bedford Whaling Museum for its current exhibit Charmed by the Sea: 150 Years and More of Yachting on Buzzards Bay.
