 The Castine Yacht Club and Sparkman & Stephens will host a gala 70th Birthday Celebration for the New York 32 Class (1936 New York Yacht Club One Design Racing Yachts). The Celebration will include a Symposium led by Olin Stephens focusing on Rod Stephens' own NY32, Mustang and the early days of New York 32 racing; NY32 and classic yacht racing in and around Castine Harbor; and of course a fabulous dinner party. We expect at least five NY32's to be in Castine and hope that present and former NY32 owners and their crew, NY32 and classic yacht enthusiasts will join us to share reminiscences and good cheer.
