Summertime sailing isn’t always about calm cruises and serene waters, there are also races to be won!

Here is a look at the N.G. Herreshoff-designed P-class sloop, Joyant, racing in coastal Maine waters. Joyant is just one of the stunning classic yachts you’ll discover through the Calendar of Wooden Boats. Don’t wait until January to get your 2016 calendar — it’s available today!

Published annually since 1983, the 2016 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.
