Nielsen yachts on display
An exhibit of 17 Nielsen-designed yachts, and a symposium on the 10th century boat-builder, was held in Castine on August 2, sponsored by the Castine Yacht Club, to kick off the Castine Classic Regatta the next day.
Two 41-foot sloops, Taygeta, and , in forefront, Passage, both built by Paul Luke in Maine, moor together in the harbor.
