Sneak Peek at a Herreshoff P-Class Racing Sloop

Here is a sneak peak of the 2015 Calendar of Wooden Boats, which will be available on July 1st. This is Joyant, a 581 x 11’6″ N.G. Herreshoff-designed P-class sloop, racing in coastal Maine waters.

Published annually since 1983, the 2015 calendar offers twelve never-before-published photographs of classic wooden boats in a variety of coastal settings. Rich color, dramatic lighting, and attention to detail are the ingredients that set the mood for this unique calendar. There are a variety of sail and power boats featured, ranging from an Abaco sloop to a unique Joel White cabin cruiser. The Lewis R. French, a Maine cruise schooner, graces our 2015 cover.

The insightful and entertaining captions accompanying each image are written by wooden boat expert Maynard Bray, who has been providing the text since the calendar’s inception.
